Defining moment. Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year.
When I decided I was leaving my previous job, and the job hunt began, I had an offer on the table from a really great arts organization in the city, but was really waiting for an offer from my current employer, Shaw. I turned down the offer from the arts organization, despite my father’s advice to take it because I didn’t have any other offers. I was glad I turned it down, because a few days later, Shaw called and had a much better offer for me!
This was a defining moment, because I learned that it is really important to wait for want you want and wish for. Patience really is a virtue, and I learned that first hand this summer.
