Can you tell us about your most stressful experience and how you overcame it?
The most stressful experience I went through was at the beginning of quarantine due to the uncertainty present in the world. In March/April of 2020, I was extremely anxious and longed to be near friends again. Over time, I learned to adjust to a new schedule that balanced a workload of schoolwork, extracurriculars, and then social time. Now, I have adjusted and feel comfort in this schedule and have got used to this new life.
How does one’s environment affect their mental well-being?
I am a strong believer in the fact that every individual is a combination of the five people they spend the most time with. This includes personality, habits, passions, and attitude. One’s environment strongly affects their mental well-being because they are, essentially, a support system. Without a strong and positive environment, it can be very difficult to have a stable mental health.
What do you feel matters the most to you?
I consider three main things that matter the most to me: healthy well-being, happiness, and success (relative to my own definition). Firstly, healthy well-being includes self care, a positive attitude and mental health. I think it’s very important to always put health first, because without good health, everything goes downhill from there. Next, happiness includes a work/life balance and being surrounded by the people I care most about. If I can have a smile on my face, I believe I can accomplish anything. And lastly, the one most important to me, success. This includes pursuing a goal that you’re passionate about and following your dreams. In my eyes, working towards my dreams and goals is success, not wealth necessarily.
What is a dream that you have yet to accomplish?
A dream I have yet to accomplish is having a happy and healthy family. Of course, that is long and far out, but since I was young, I have been really excited to have a family and kids! But. before this, comes working at a senior position and travelling to many countries. As someone very passionate in business, I look forward to hopefully working for a large company or owning a start-up. But, along with that, I want to travel all over the world – Europe and Australia, especially!
What would you want the Revive audiences to know about you?
I would like the Revive audiences to know that I love meeting new people! This includes new friends and getting to know others beyond my local area. I would love to talk to anyone virtually, especially if you’re looking for a friend. I love talking about anything Taylor Swift, STEM, latest trends, room decor, and more!
