Kyyah's Advice to Others
"The one thing I wish I was told more in high school and college was that it's okay to change your mind. I always thought I had to marry the career ideas I dreamt up at 16 years old. In reality, I could have changed my mind at any point, and eventually, I did. I didn't go to medical school but it took me years to accept that fate because I thought not going meant failure. It's safe to say I haven't failed by skipping medical school and you won't fail if you decide to accept the fate of a different career path than originally desired. We are all entitled to change our minds! That's the greatest part of a career journey if you ask me. The climb is never what we imagine but the outcome is always rewarding".
