What does going Against The Grain mean to you? “I remember being told when I was in high school that the only way I would find a decent job after college was if I majored in Computer Science, Engineering, Medicine or Accounting. I tried Computer Science first year in college, and hated it with a passion. To think I had to be stuck in a cubical programming all day was something I had no interest in. As for the other subject matters, well, I also did not find that interesting. I ended up switching to Economics as my major almost at the end of my sophomore year and still managed to graduate in 4 years total. All I can say is I had a passion to succeed in life… but not exactly a passion in those 4 subjects that most traditional Asian families feel are “safe bets” to succeed in your career – your life. I went against what my family felt was a ‘safe bet’ for a successful career, but I could not be happier in what I had accomplished and still am accomplishing thus far in life. If you have the passion, you will succeed.”
