Being unreasonable with myself

Transcending reason, transcending fear

Monica Goel

Monica thought about joining Indicorps for 4-5 years; she kept hesitating. She was risk averse and knew her friends and family would not support it. Monica finally went with her heart over her head to do something unconventional; she deems her time in India as "one of the most powerful experiences of her life."

Something to think about

  1. The choices we make while in the service of others can be personally transformative. Think about a challenge you are facing in your project or community -- can you describe anything holding you back from living the most authentic version of yourself, or a fear holding you back?
  2. What does it mean for you to live authentically?
  3. How important is it that your family and friends support your goals, particularly when your goals involve creating social change?
