"My biggest struggle right now would be meeting expectations. I worked for three different companies before, and I am not even that old. "

"Everybody around me had such high expectations I decided to choose a type of work which I wasn’t very happy with, but I thought that my environment would be happy with the choice I made. After a couple of years I realised that it was not my choice, but the choice of my environment. I feel like I have overcome this problem a little bit, but I think it’s really difficult to place yourself in front of what your environment thinks of you."
