Episode 18: Selena Guo

Selena Guo zooms into the Common Room and uses the analogy of "the butterfly stirring up a tornado" to describe her international upbringing and the "accidents" that have given her insight into where she wants to be and what she wants to do with her life by balancing her interest in media and theater (5:01). Afterward, Selena reflects on how she integrated her interest in media to expand her understanding of global relations, what led her to write a book (Turning 15 in Africa) about her time in Kenya, and how her experiences in Kenya related to a global audience (18:41).  Finally, Selena shares additional takeaways from her experience writing a book, how she's handled audience reactions to her book, and how she's preparing for the next phase of her life post-Schwarzman (33:19).
