At school I was a classic book-smart nerd, which made for a tough time on the playground. But I stuck it out and ultimately found my people at university. The upside? Thick skin and an appreciation for those who don’t fit in.
As one of the first in my family to graduate from university and have a ‘white-collar’ job, I’m used to navigating through unfamiliar territory. It’s not something I dwell on, but it is something I’ve felt self-conscious about. I’m grateful for the opportunities and support I’ve had along the way.
I love bringing together people who are exactly what the other is looking for. Now it’s just a part of my job, but in another life, I think I’d make a great matchmaker!
