All my life, I have loved studying but I do not like school. When I was a kid, unlike other kids, I would save all my money to buy books not candy or toys. When I was in middle school, I used to buy books at wholesale price, read and resell them to my classmates at retail price. I enjoyed gaining knowledge and money at the same time. I do not like to memorize anything because I have Google. The more I spend time at school, the more I hate it. I feel like I am wasting time because I learn much more from life than any teacher.
Why do I need college, if I have Google? Continue reading
During my 14 months on Twitter, I have learned much more about life than I have in 4 years of university. Every day people asked me about how I got so many followers, to be honest I am not the best person to answer that question because I do not really care much about that number anymore. I have been a very competitive person all my life. If I am not the best, I feel like I have not tried my best. My parents taught me to look up to the people who are better than me. Never be to happy if you achieve something because it is the start of a new journey to conquer a bigger goal. If you had worked with me at my nonprofit a few years ago, you would have to hear this every single day “There is nothing impossible, we have to be the best or you should not be here.” A year ago my formal assistant and I had a talk, he told me “CamMi when I was working for you, I hated you. You have always pushed me so hard. But I have to admit I learned so much from it. If you did not push me like that I would never reach my full potential. Thank you.” In real life, I am more like the ruthless and cynical Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada than an angel. If I push my staffs very hard, I would push myself even harder. When I started Twitter I set a goal, in a year I have to be one of the Twitter elites. I have never been the smartest one, but I work very hard to get what I want. And of course I became an elite in less than a year.
