Nobody To Somebody I Wished For!
I am currently a Junior studying in the United States and I will be graduating in a year. What stressed me out was that I did not have a resume up to par because I always kept to myself and never participated much. I knew that if this continued on, I would never get a job once I graduated. That would be something that would be devastating as my mom spent a fortune funding my education so that I would get a better life here in the US. So, I wished for a couple of things and I believed in it and let it go.
Then I saw the opportunities popping up on my college ads for societies, jobs, auditions, etc. I began by going to a first meeting for an Economics Society on campus and guess what? My friend nominated me as Vice President and I got it. That blew my mind! My first time ever holding a position and I got the position of a VP! I started being confident and took more opportunities I saw. I applied for a job as a Transition Mentor. The chances for anyone to get a job like this would be very slim. I was shortlisted for an interview and I swear I thought I flunked it! I did not bother waiting for their response and put it behind me.
A couple of days later, I saw an audition call for The Vagina Monologues. I have always envied my friends who have performed on stage so I thought since I would not get the job that I flunked, I might as well go for this audition for the sake of my resume! Bare in mind that I had no experience in performing! I auditioned and I was surprised how well I performed the monologues. I was so good that they told me right away that I was in. I was on top of the world!
I was so happy that I called my mom in Malaysia. While talking to her I received an email saying that I had gotten the job as well!! Everything was perfect at that moment.
I am so blessed and thankful! But I know that I want more and that all I have to do is ask! All I want is out there for me waiting.
