Find Something That Makes You Happy ep. 6

Thank you for listening to Changes BIG and small. This week, I’m speaking with Emily Sliman. Although she’s a teacher like Ryan, who I chatted with last week, their paths have been quite different. Emily started out working as a software engineer before changing to be a pastry chef. She didn’t find the passion that she was seeking there, and instead found it as a high school Math teacher. Along the way, Emily’s lived in 8 countries. In that time, she’s learned to embrace change and to say yes to new experiences. She also faced one of the biggest challenges of her life in the past few years. Join us to learn about Emily’s journey. I hope that you will connect with her message and find inspiration to pursue your own dreams.
