Growing up in an Asian family, parents encouraged children to be either one of three professions.

  1. Doctor
  2. Lawyer
  3. Businessman – namely investment banking (stocks)

Your job defined who you were. Your job brought your family face. Given those terms, I was a failure. And still am considering I’m the black sheep.

But I’ve always been on a pursuit of happiness. And happy I did. What I’ve come to conclude is that my definition of happiness evolves with time. Now, it so happens to be photography and marketing.

Stay happy.

Pinnable quote by George Burns:

i honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love
