In 2010, Annie Lawless was a law student stuck in a deep depression. Unable to find joy in her current situation, she pulled the trigger and quit.
“Dropping out felt like a pretty big failure,” explained Lawless. “So much so I didn’t even tell my parents until after the fact because I was ashamed that I set out to do something and didn’t finish it or see it through.”
The La Jolla, California native eventually realized instead of following the path she thought she wanted, she instead should pursue the things she’s was passionate about.
