No felines here – you only live once
BostInno - 02/09/2016
YOLO. It was the catchphrase of the century a couple years back, a phrase that allowed us to branch out of the norm and do something radical. Unlike cats, we only live once, and this proclamation is the underlying instigator behind many status-quo-breaking things we do.
For me, that was taking a job beyond the comfort of my small bubble on the East Coast. I’ve studied abroad for a month each for the past two summers, once in Italy and once in India (also YOLO moments), and am currently working as a co-op in Silicon Valley – a place I have only read about prior to this experience.
In reflecting on both my satisfaction with my decision to journey to the West Coast and on the success of NUMA’s recent Beyond Boston Panel, where NU students and alumni spoke at the Northeastern University Marketing Association’s semesterly event, I wanted to touch upon just a few things.
