Ask Candy: What's the Bravest Thing You've Ever Done?
What does being brave mean to you? Does it mean jumping off a bridge? Darting out of a plane? Maybe finally asking your crush out on a date? It can be something major or just a small step out of your comfort zone. Either way, being brave is something scary and at times, difficult. But once you've done it, doesn't it feel great to know that you at least tried? We share some of our bravest moments below. Don't forget to share yours, too!
|I said yes to being Candy's EIC in 2011! It was terrifying, and there have been some trying times, but I don't regret it at all. :) —Marla, Editor In Chief
|I took a leap from my old job and applied to work for Candy. :) At that time it was hard for me because I hardly had any magazine design experience, but I guess hard work and perseverance really pays off after all! —Steph, Art Director|
|Run a marathon. After training for six months and running 42 kilometers for more than seven hours, I finally crossed the finish line! :) —Angel, Managing Editor|
|Go surfing for the first time! I didn't think I'd be able to stand, but I did and I ended up spending a total of four hours on the board in San Juan back in January. —Dyan, Entertainment and Features Editor|
|Last year, I went on a solo trip around Europe. It taught me to become more self-aware as well as find an appreciation for spontaneity. —Ning, Fashion and Beauty Assistant|
|I asked out a boy I really liked (check out the February 2015 issue to see how I did it!) and he said yes. —Kaye, Editorial Assistant
Move into a house that my brothers and I pay for together. It's definitely a struggle being an adult, but I couldn't be prouder of how my family and I have helped each other managing the household without our mom. —Macy, Web Managing Editor
|Forgive everyone who's ever hurt me and move on from all of it. —Erin, Web Fashion and Beauty Assistant|
|Go to Singapore on my own in 2013. It was the first time I went out of the country and my first time to travel alone. It was a little scary but mostly, exciting. The trip gave me a clearer view of my life and my goals. :) —Ayessa, Web Editorial Assistant|
