How I got to where I am
Hey guys!

So I'll just start by introducing myself. My name is Coleen, I'm a student in my final year. Business management major. I have been struggling for the longest time, and when I say longest I really mean all my life! I have been struggling to figure out what my passion is and what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I went from wanting to be a writer when I was in primary school cause my best subject was English, a doctor when I got in the sciences class, auditor when I got to A level, to name just a few of my wildest dreams. I tried connecting the dots. What am I good at? What do I enjoy doing? To make things worse, my talents and passions were never aligning. Like ever! I found myself forcing things. I like people and dealing with emotions so I should be a psychologist. But wait! I am an introvert and I enjoy learning things on my own, I should be a coder!

These are legit thoughts that ran through my mind my entire teenagehood into adulthood. They consumed me on most days and I found myself really worried and depressed. So what am I going to end up doing? Am I cut for life? All these other people my age have things figured out. I'm graduating in less than a year and I still struggle to answer what I will be doing after school. Its crazy.
