Having the Courage

Presented by

Claudia Amy Salador, CEO/Founder

About this talk

'Having the courage' has become my new personal brand tagline. No longer are we a generation of robots, filing in and out of the same out dated system but we are unique and special individuals that are starting to march to our own beat. I used to be a robot, but I now march to my own beat after turning down a job at a top PR company in London. At age 22, I found the courage within myself, like many other youthful millennials today to make their own decisions in life, regarding jobs, choices, challenges. This meant not doing what was expected but what was meaningful to me. This choice of journey means continually defending my decisions to everyone, making harder decisions how to carve up my time, really figuring out what I wanted to do, what I can do, my skills, my passions - continuously thinking whether I am mad or not, questioning how I would make a living - many questions, multiple answers... NOTHING that I had been taught about in university. I am representing the millennial generation, doing things differently and having the courage to do so. I want to inspire everyone and anyone to not quit their jobs, but find their meaning, their passion and go for it!
