Career advice: Firstly have a purpose in life, this gives you clarity and a sense of direction. For instance, my aim in life has always been to improve the education system of Nepal. Secondly, align your day to day activities with your purpose. This gives a sense of accomplishment. Thirdly, if you can’t deliver a lot, be kind and forgive yourself, then move on. Also, always be confident about yourself, own your skin and love yourself first.
