Happening Now: Class of 2018 Insights @ Penn
August 1, 2018 . Zishan Li
In the Class of 2018 series, Zishan talks about overcoming failures and setbacks.
"Teachers and parents are always telling us to step outside our comfort zone. The reality is we subconsciously avoid anything that will put us in an embarrassing and uncomfortable situation. It’s an instinct that we are all born with to weave a safety net for any kind of emotional free fall. At Endevvr, we are taught that we succeed by failing over and over again. Failures and setbacks are defining. The most embarrassing and bitter moments in life catalyze our growth and help us become more clear that who we are as a person."

In the Class of 2018 series, Yi Chen talks about the nature of learning-by-doing.
"Perhaps the quiet, shy member of a group happened to be the most insightful. Or perhaps there were hidden talents in someone that we did not see. And sometimes we even learned about ourselves. But the important thing is that we have learned."
