I always tell people that I’m very ambitious and driven; but behind it all, I am also a person of integrity, or at least I try my best to be. It is easy to be persuaded and blinded by the superficial things in this world; so before I make any decisions, I make sure that I would base it, not only for my own sake, but also if it would hurt other people or go against what I believe in and stand for.
A year or more back, I might be the kind of person who won’t care about other things as long as my career is doing well and I’m getting my job done. But when I started getting involved in developmental work through my current job for a non-profit organization, my perspective changed. All of a sudden, I started caring for other people as well and I started to wholeheartedly support the advocacy of the organization I work for.

This fight is not about my earthly and superficial wants. This fight is for what I believe is right. I chose the path that was not easy; but I would rather be here than choose the easy way out of things, settle for what gives me security, go against the advocacy I support, use people for my own personal benefit and be a blind follower.
I am making a stand.
