At my most despair moment, I realize what I wanted to protect the most: my best 2 years of education at UBC. I always thought I sided towards the business aspect; I am but when I have the chance to do both, I learned about focus. Focus on Food science - a foundation educations that built into my experience as a food scientist.
I knew what is important for me. I worked hard to established what I have. It is not a miracle, that are delivered right to my front. I learned every single things of the so called experiences. I am longing for guidance as there are minimal guidance. I am expected to know. I am, however, lucky to have friends and mentors around me that are kind and sincere to provide such guidance.
I dealt with challenges that I never imagine I encountered- that is probably why they called it challenges. Confrontation over what is right to be done and adequateness of implementation and SOPs. The changes I want to bring are all a matter of management decision and it is always revocable - Welcome to a life of a "manager". It wasn't food science consideration; it is about some other similar industry practices.
It teach me more than where I am but also, to learn how I can make the best out of it. I need to know and I will keep knowing...
