Overcoming Her Biggest Failure & Buying Her Own Car – Jennifer Yu Part 1
January 25, 2023

Jennifer Yu was a young woman living in Pennsylvania, full of ambition and dreams. One day with a friend, she saw a black Volkswagen Super Beetle for sale and, against all odds, decided to take the plunge and purchase it. She was proud to own something that was 100% hers and it gave her the freedom she craved. 

When Jennifer went for her Masters, she had never experienced failure before. But when she failed her exam, she was crushed. After months of hard work and studying, it was devastating. But she persevered, and passed the exam on her second attempt. Jennifer’s experience taught her that she can survive failure and not let it define her. It also gave her the resilience to take on new challenges and keep pursuing her dreams.

Thanks again and welcome to Good Life Stories.
