This week on #MillennialTalk, we spoke with Shinjini Das, @SpeakerShinjini about “How to Control the Steering Wheel to Your Destiny.” The engagement among our over 300 participants was incredibly fast paced and packed with a Millennial’s perspective on how they are creating their own destiny. It’s inspiring to see the passionate Millennial voices that are contributing to and growing our chat and forum for Millennials each week!!
Here’s a recap of our chat Q&A with Shinjini Das as well as some of the interaction that flowed during #MillennialTalk:
1. @Chelseakrost Do you believe in a pre-written destiny or do you think we are responsible for writing our own destiny?
A1. @SpeakerShinjini We are responsible for writing our own destiny to ensure that ours are some of the greatest stories ever written. #MillennialTalk
Q2. @ChelseaKrost What would you say to someone who believes that our destiny is pre-written and that we have no choice but to accept it?
