Finding Her Passion
When Delia came to MIT, she wanted to find her passion: something difficult, challenging, and all consuming. This was her image of an MIT student. After trying multiple subjects and activities and realizing that none were the “one thing” for her, she feels lost. A conversation with her coach helps her realize that what she does like – bring together different ideas and bringing out the best in the people around her – is valuable and valid.
...what I am good at is looking at a whole bunch of different things and bringing them all together and bringing out the best in the people around me...it is still valuable and most importantly, it is what I like.”
