As a young professional living in New York City, this is how I feel 99% of the time: as though I will never figure out how to navigate everything and where I fit in, because there’s so much I don’t know. The good news is, I learn so many new things every day, without even really trying!

These are the qualities I respect above all others, mainly because I can’t really pull them off.
