12th place
Allow me to share with you a very personal photo. My mother's battle against breast cancer in Taiwan. I was studying to become a lawyer in the USA. My career pursuit comes to a sudden stopped upon hearing the news of my mother's failing health. Suddenly, my career ambition seem meaningless to me. I just want to be home spending whatever quality time I can with her.
