Related to your business career, if you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? by Sharmin Prince

If I could change one aspect of my business career, it would be to have recognized earlier the toxic elements of the work environment—microaggressions, favoritism, racism, discrimination, and colorism—and the underlying systemic issues perpetuated by governmental and major nonprofit organizations. Instead of enduring this for 18 years, I would have made a conscious decision to transition into an advocacy role. This change in career direction would align with my values and enable me to actively challenge and potentially improve the conditions in which veterans live in SROs (Single Room Occupancy housing). Furthermore, it would allow me to stand up for the rights of the overworked and underpaid staff operating on the front lines, many of whom struggle with living below the poverty line.

In this alternative career path, I would be leveraging my experience and insight to fight for social justice, ensuring that these injustices are brought to light and addressed, and that the individuals affected by them receive the respect and support they deserve. This shift would also be a move towards a profession that not only matches my professional skills but also deeply resonates with my personal convictions and passion for advocacy.
