Embrace change and uncertainty, and tame your fear. I packed my life into two suitcases and moved to Ghana without a job to pursue my passion for international development and social impact. I did not know what that pursuit journey looked like, but I took a chance to not worry about "what ifs." I am who I am today because of the change and uncertainty I have embraced and the fear I have tamed.
