Eric Yen ’17: “Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone”


There's not much I would change with my two years here at CBS, but if I could go back and talk to the Eric from two years ago, I would tell him to take some more risks, and step outside of his comfort zone. The times at CBS when I've grown the most, when I've experienced the most, has been when I've stepped outside of my comfort zone and done something totally uncomfortable.

For example, becoming a Peer Advisor, never thought that I would be a Peer Advisor, standing in front of 80 students, making a fool of out of myself during orientation. But during that week, I grew so much as a leader, and I grew so much as a person. So continue to step outside of your comfort zone.
