1. Innovation & Entrepreneurship
By far the one thing I wake up to looking forward to see. My mindset is so innovative people consider me crazy at times but when they happen to be impressed by me they instantly think better of me. One thing I love more than anything is understanding people, how they react, think and why they do certain things. If we understand how we evolved from little organisms we can understand where we are going from now (or at least have a brief idea of what to expect). Business is one of the things I love to be around, participating in Young Enterprise Scheme, Enterprise in Action, Idea Starter and most recently Venture Up has gotten me so close to amazing people from different backgrounds I didn’t even know existed.
I see Innovation & Entrepreneurship being the most recent 21st cray that is slowly growing in our education system here in New Zealand and to be honest, it is about time. We are slowly seeing the transition of “old” businesses, their values, working environment and operations being outdated and obsolete.
Entrepreneurship in general is so fun, yeah its hard but nothing should be easy here in life, why wouldn’t you like your mind to be free to think outside the box? As a current business student I hope to inspire younger business students to pursue their dreams as Perseverance is literally the key to success with running your own business.
I want to help as many people as I can to achieve their goals, I’m a people person and I’m willing to help anyone out their willing to change the world for the better.. Who knows, maybe I will mentor the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, teaching is a way I keep myself updated with the ever changing business environment and I enjoy it immensely!
2. Deep Meaningful Conversations
As mentions before I am a very people person, however I wasn’t always like this open. If you met me 7 years ago I would have been considered the “Ultra nerd”; I use to play Yu-gi-Oh at lunch times while other people played rugby or touch, I had a mushroom haircut which I got teased for majority of the time and literally had the smallest group of friends anyone in intermediate could have.
That all changed in High School, now I literally talk about everything to everyone and I am honestly enjoying this transition where I am open and free (another result of business). I literally can have a Deep Meaningful Conversation (DMC) for hours talking about stuff that may not even be relative to myself or the person i’m talking to however I enjoy it more than clubbing or going out doing something.
I just find it interesting seeing other peoples viewpoint on a certain issue or topic as you see world through your eyes only, but imagine if you could understand what and the reasons why people have opposing viewpoints. People will be understanding the world alot more better as diversity is also becoming an increasing trend in our society, I am literally one of the most diverse people you can meet, I am brown colored from my Fijian side however I have chingy eyes from my Chinese side, however I act like one of the whitest people ever (only sometimes).
However most times I feel being alone is the best way, but when I need happiness I find it in others. Talking about random stuff makes a connection to the person and you understand the world is not perfect while building a deeper sense of belonging with the other person.
Now I have been in quite abit of relationships if I do say so myself, learn’t the ups and downs, how they tick, why get in one but I myself have never found someone who is the “One” (again).
Love and relationship is one of the most confusing emotions we as humans get and it is something I’m still trying to understand for myself why some of us plainly just need it. I believe relationships are not forever, however I would like to understand because in the end we will all have to commit to one. If this was in business terms we would have to invest for what in return? It’s not a wise investment but it is something we must make as otherwise you will grow up alone in a sad room, something I do not want in my lifetime here.
Any advice I can give I will give, I honestly hope for the best for humankind because to be honest we are amazing to be where we are at the moment, through this page you’ll discover my values, thoughts and reasoning of what it means to be me.
I’ve struggled, carried on, sacrificed and thought outside the box all for Entrepreneurship, Friends and finally Relationships. Lets hope I can pass on my wisdom to whoever chooses to read this.
