A few years ago I came to a crossroads in my career.
I realized that I wanted to head in a different direction and I wondered where the things I had already done would point me that I should tread. Unfortunately I found that they seemingly had little to do with each other. I had taught in Japan, been a political intern and worked for charities- where were the links?
After a while however, with the support of good people I realized that the links were very much there- and that they showed me a clear way forward.
