Life in my twenties was a period of rapid transitions. My adventures as a young woman have brought me back into the wild where comfort and risk merge in a place where learning and growing come together.

The following are some of the most valuable life lessons from my 20s:

Your life philosophy may be flawed. Just when you thought you already know everything about the world, there’s a likelihood you might be wrong. As you go on, your views about relationships, politics, and career will be redefined by your experiences in the real world.

Life never gets much easier. Everything will require a lot of work and effort. There will always be failures and setbacks, but you will have no choice but to keep going.

If you want to be successful, you must keep learning. The things you have learned in school are just a fraction of what will be needed when you are building your career. Stay humble and learn new things that will help you in your career.

Pursue your passion Your job means nothing if you are not enjoying what you do. While you are young, do something you are passionate about and do something you love.

Remember, your twenties are not by default the only time in your life that you can pick up and go. No matter your age is, life goes on, and you will continually learn new lessons in every chapter of your life as an individual.
