About the Blog
The Career Misfit Blog is a reflection of my journey towards myself–discovering who I am, who I’m not, and the ways in which I can make a difference in the world around me. Through it, I hope to provide insight, advice and encouragement for people who are struggling to find their purpose, who feel compelled to do and be more in their life.
About the Author
My name is Yuniya Khan. I’ve always marched to the beat of a different drum, though I haven’t always embraced that. For a good portion of my life I tried to fit myself into standard patterns and expectations, without much success.
A “misfit,” according to the American Heritage Dictionary, is something of the wrong size or shape for its purpose.
As a career misfit, I may not have followed the conventional pathways to success and stability, and I may have found myself to be the wrong size or shape for certain opportunities.
But I do have a purpose, and that purpose lies in knowing who I am and who I’m not, in understanding my strengths and limitations, in embracing the entire package of me.
