One Woman’s Path to Cultural Immersion and Entrepreneurship

Living abroad, especially in a country where you don’t natively speak the language, is never easy. It’s even more of a challenge if you start a company there. And that’s is exactly what Elizabeth J. Taylor did.

An avid fan of Rick Steve’s Europe (she would fight to watch it on Saturday mornings at the age of eight) Elizabeth took up French as part of her college studies. Required to go abroad for her major, Elizabeth decided to use her last semester at Vanderbilt University to intern and take classes in France.  That small taste of living and working abroad wasn’t enough though, she wanted to live in France full time and really immerse herself in the culture.

One Millennial’s Unconventional Path to Becoming A Published Author

Jake Ducey will be the first to tell you that he’s anything but conventional. The 23-year-old author of Into the Wind and The Purpose Principles didn’t take what many would consider the traditional path after high school.

As a student-athlete at California Lutheran University, Jake was going through the motions and found that he was struggling to find meaning in everything that he was doing. When he realized that his college life style of playing basketball, partying, and studying business was taking a toll on his happiness, he decided to leave school.

Upon leaving behind his college life, Jake embarked on a 6-month journey that took him to places like Guatemala, Australia, Thailand, and more. During this time, he found his calling of motivating millennials just like him. Today, he works to help young people find meaning in their lives.

We interviewed Jake to learn more about his story, his journey and how he went from college dropout to a published author with a passion.

Elaine Wong with Favorite painting on about.me

The Artistic Journey of Elaine Wong

Born in Alor Setar, a small town in northern Malaysia, Elaine Wong grew up with a passion for technology and drawing. “If you were to ask my primary school friends, they would all tell you that my schoolbooks were always full of doodles and sketches.”

Her artworks were featured on classroom bulletin boards and she was once asked to design the school mural. But it was her childhood ambition to work with computers that led to her finding a job in the IT industry and soon she found herself in hospitality systems, going to hotels or hotel headquarters to assess and implement computer systems as well as provide training and support for them.
