I had a 2.9 GPA in University.
It took me 5 years to graduate.
I failed 4 classes. If there was an award for of classes missed, I would have won.
I prioritized freedom over studying. Biomedical Studies did not resonate, and I sunk deeply into anxiety. I accepted I was mediocre. The failure of my first three years of University was essential to my growth. Looking back, I see how it humbled that cocky 18-year-old kid with a 91% high school average who won awards, was on every team, and in every club.
I realized I was not good at everything, and that was okay. I was building resilience.
I graduated with a general degree with a major in Psychology, gained some corporate experience in the workforce, completed my postgrad in Sport & Event Marketing.
I’m now in an executive position, in my sweet spot at the intersection of psychology and business. More importantly than the position, I’ve found people and a process that me to become more self-aware and reach my potential. I work harder than I’ve ever worked, and I’m constantly filled with energy, not anxiety. I am achieving my own version of success…and nobody has ever asked me my GPA. You got this kid, GPA damned.
