YOO KIM

Cornell University, Content Strategist at Facebook

Yoo, known by her friends as an amazing hip hop dancer with a knack for product design, went through college taking on dozens of company rejections, actually failing classes, and "not having her sh*t together her junior year."

"During my junior year, I realized I had no idea what I was doing with my college experience and was not passionate, in any way, about the career path I had laid out for myself. I was going to classes and failing them because of my lack of interest, so I took a step back to re-evaluate what was wrong. Despite being a junior and feeling an overwhelming pressure to, like everyone else, continue on with the path I had paved, I took a sharp pivot and began to try new things that have made me much happier. Don't ever be scared of detours if they'll lead you where you need to go."
