"As a child of immigrants, there’s a constant duality in our miscellaneous existence, the feeling of not belonging fully to a specific culture. The unlikeness of living one culture in a foreign country, that is where you advance new observation by learning to balance the both with the consideration of not given any overcoming thoughts that believe there is a better society than others, instead, simply embraces, learn and accept construal diversity. Looking back, I was a confident guy, always with energy meanwhile embracing the frames around me and trying to blend in."
"Find people that value you or people that you can learn from as everyone has a story and each story could have been anyone."
"Sharing my story has made me realise how much I have changed since moving back to the UK, and how the challenges I have faced along the way have helped shape me as an individual. I hope that by sharing my struggles, I can help others realise that they are not alone during their journey to securing their dream career. And that they should never let a setback hold them back, but instead use it as a learning experience. "
"Sometimes life is not meant to be perfect, but that is okay because in the end, it means we become stronger as individuals. Life’s troubles can help us reach our career goals, making us more appreciative of our accomplishments and more deserved of what we make ourselves."
"I want to simply impact the lives of others to fulfil their purpose in life. Overall, sharing my story reminded me to not be complacent in the position that I am in now but to strive for more. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to share my experience but also to unlock some doors that had been locked and forgotten about, but worth exposing. Not only did I share this chapter out of my own interest but to also impact you as the reader."
"You are the main character of your story."
Thank you to our wonderful authors for sharing their stories and providing words of wisdom. We hope the book helps students, educators and employers to support themselves and others who may face barriers in life.
