It is important for us to bring to life the best version of ourselves regardless of our limitations.
Being at our best is an evolving process, yet the one true constant is that we improve without settling.
How do you keep pushing forward when every circumstance is screaming at you to quit?
This week’s episode is all about how newcomers, immigrants and international students can overcome adversity and achieve outstanding success. I discussed extensively with Samra Zafar, strategies that newcomers, immigrants, and international students can adopt to succeed in life.
