I’ll Never Forget That Day a Woman in a Tank Top Changed My Life

I had just graduated from college and was on the hunt for my first job. I had applied to so many places, but didn’t have any luck. One day, I got an email saying that I should come in for an interview at this company who specialized in web design. When I went there, they were having a contest where they would give two people jobs if they could answer a question correctly. The question was: “What is the most important thing you can do to get ahead?”

So one girl says that it’s about being confident and not letting others bring you down while another girl say it’s all about networking and meeting new people. They both seemed like great answers, but when she said networking, the boss hired her. I started to think about my own answer and realized that it was probably networking too, but as soon as I thought of the girl in a tank top who had inspired me so much when she said it, I knew for sure this is what I would have told them if they’d asked me.

I didn’t get the job because her boss hired someone else, but now every day when people ask how to succeed at work or school, all I do is show them that picture of her right before she answered.”

The most important thing you can do to get ahead is always be confident and not let others bring you down! That’s why even though one girl might say that meeting new people will help your career while another says that staying in your comfort zone is best, I think it’s important to try both.

When you go out of your way to get the experience and knowledge that will help you succeed later on, people won’t be able to ignore how hardworking and dedicated you are! So give yourself a little push by going outside of your comfort zone every day.”

My story starts when I was a child of five or six, growing up in an all-girls Catholic school with nuns as teachers. It just so happened that this day we had been assigned to write about our heroes – it didn’t take me long to choose my idol: Madonna! In class she seemed like a queen but at home she felt more like one of us. She lived her own life without any shame and wasn’t afraid to speak out if someone said something offensive towards her; no matter how much criticism came her way, she always stood strong for what mattered most: love and acceptance.

It is now thirteen years later since meeting my idol for the first time and I can tell you that every day since then has been a reminder of one simple truth: to be yourself.

I hope that reading my words will inspire all readers, especially girls like me who feel as if they’re living in an alternate reality where their dreams are far from reach, to live without fear because it is possible for any woman with enough inspiration

With love, Madonna’s number one fan girl (or guy!) or whatever!

In conclusion: I hope these tips can motivate other girls in their own career journeys. We all have big dreams but it takes time and patience for those dreams come true. Girls should always be confident because we can do anything if we put our minds into it!! 🙂
