Seeking Spontaneous Discomfort & Meeting Strangers with Lemai Vo - Ep 36
In this episode, my guest Lemai shares how she overcomes the challenges of majoring in Chemistry, and her hobbies of knitting & crocheting. Lemai and I also talk about my personal favorite YouTube channel, Yes Theory, that Lemai also loves. We talk about the message of the channel to "Seek Discomfort" and that "Strangers are just friends you haven't met yet." That leads us into a conversation about engaging with the Yes Fam community, and later, the story of how Lemai created and organized a "Speed Friends" event on Zoom for the Yes Fam, which is actually how she and I met.
Lemai's experiences show that while planning things out can be great for certain situations, sometimes, the best experiences are the ones that come across spontaneously, the ones that push you out of your comfort zone, and involve a little bit of risk. Figure out for yourself the balance of planning and spontaneity that works for you. Lemai's experiences also show us the value of engaging with people, even strangers, in pursuit of meaningful connections from around the world. Thanks for coming on the show Lemai!
