At some stages I tried to give up. Listen to Rachel’s story

At the times when I put in resumes and everything, got the interview and they still didn’t choose me … I felt down. At some stages I tried to give up. But I kept pushing.

If you fall down or if you’re planning to give up, just think about your future and how your family would want you to be.
