Short Story of the Week: From Taxis to Tuk-Tuks

Why a recent college grad walked away from work to see the world and make her mark on it

Howard grad, Glynn Pogue’s story about her journey of exploration during her last years of college served as the April “Share” feature in Essence magazine. Read the story here.

What I love about this story:

  • It speaks to the journey of self-discovery that so many undergrads struggle to navigate as they move to the next phase of their lives.
  • She gives you context for her experience by referencing the experiences of her peers.
  • Glynn’s story is so relatable — many recent grads look to juggle parents’ expectations, real-world expenses and long-term career goals with the passions and dreams of their 20s.

Every week, we will look to post a short story that catches our eye — a little inspiration for our contributors.
