Before YCH, I felt like I was losing sight of who I was. YCH seemed like the real deal. No flowery language, no crazy promises. I decided I was ready to do the work and finally talk to someone who understood what I was going through.
I’ll be honest – I didn’t expect my life to change after YCH. I now have three things I never in my wildest dreams could’ve imagined: clarity, confidence, and direction.
I no longer feel that sense of dread when I think about work. I actually wake up everyday excited to work on my Homecoming Career. The happiness I feel has inched its way to other areas of my life and for that, I am grateful.
As someone with I-have-too-many-interests syndrome, YCH has been invaluable in helping to ground me and figure out what to focus on. The best thing that I’ve gotten from YCH is action. I made a solid and responsible plan for leaving my job. I didn’t wait for permission, more education, the right time, or more money to start working towards my Homecoming Career.
I am happy to share that a couple weeks after YCH ended, I officially transitioned from my tech job into my new role as a floral design assistant, the first stop on my path towards becoming an event designer. I owe YCH for helping me find purpose for doing this work and giving me the tools I need to make my next leaps forward.
