Episode Overview

In this episode, Rebecca discusses her decision to reject the corporate route after business school and fly to Tanzania instead. She talks about her realizations during school regarding the type of work she wants to be doing, and asking herself, “What would I do if I only had one year to live?” Rebecca then tells us about her journey into the world of international development and discovering the darker side of “good” work. We further discuss entrepreneurship, the loneliness of betting on yourself, and how it feels to feel alive.
