Through three stories and an honest looking glass of failure and resilience, Evangelina shares the importance of pivoting career paths to become the authentic self. The diversity of past experiences – and the knowledge acquired with it – eventually come together in the long-term to accelerate new opportunities that wouldn’t have been available otherwise. In the journey of finding our passion, we can only connect the dots looking backwards. Who knows what would have happened, had all this not happened?
