The Ripple Effects of Courage

There’s a distinct ripple effect that occurs when we witness or perform acts of courage.

The greatest act of courage you can perform is to do what makes you happy; to do the right thing, even when it’s scary. Yewande Austin shares her own ups and downs in practicing courage. She talks about social activism and encourages us to lean into our fear so that we can make a difference.

Editor’s note:

Dear reader, after 2.5 years of serving as Head of Content, I will be moving on to pursue my own creative endeavors. Making this newsletter for you was a major highlight of my creative career in the last 8 years. I served you, the learners, the open-minded, curious, and hungry creatives that do important work. It was an unforgettable and enriching privilege to do so.

My colleague and friend, Emerline Ji, will be crafting the Weekly Highlights. I am so proud of her growth and commitment to serving this community. She over-delivers consistently, has good taste, and a big heart. Please join me in giving Emerline a warm welcome and hug. If you want to stay in touch, you can find me on my website or Instagram.

This newsletter was made like my favorite Korean dish, Tteokguk—a dish that is a symbol for prosperity and good health, eaten once a year, and always made with love and family in mind.

Waving from Brooklyn,

Paul Jun
