"Things happen for a reason. You are sure of it. You are sure of it because in your soul you know that we are all connected." - Connectedness from StrengthsFinder
Fairly (eerily) accurate depiction of one of Top 5 strengths per StrengthsFinder 2.0. Whether it's introducing two strangers who may become a perfect match or blending several random points to make one, I see myself constantly and subconsciously trying to connect the dots between ideas and people.
And if I were to dig deeper...it's probably a reason why I love traveling to foreign places...because I somehow believe we're all connected in some way. And why I've always had an unquenchable thirst for language learning...it's because I want to get closer and "connected" with people around the world. And I guess it explains a plethora of other hobbies ranging from reading to volunteering to meeting new people...I've always felt connected to people in some way or another.
Gallup says I'm a "bridge builder for people of different cultures," and I very much like that title. Bridge builder. Maybe next time someone asks me, "So...what do you do?"
"I'm a bridge builder for people of different cultures."
