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!

Marla Miniano, Editor In Chief 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
Steph Yapnayon, Art Director 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
Angel Constantino Aquino, Managing Editor 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
Dyan Zarzuela, Entertainment and Features 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
Ning Nuñez, Fashion and Beauty Assistant 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
Kaye Robles, Editorial 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
Macy Alcaraz, Web Managing Editor

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

Ayessa De La Pena, Web Editorial 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
