The first Asian woman tenured at Harvard Law School, a Guggenheim Fellow, a Herbert Jacob Prize Winner, and selected as one of the Best Lawyers Under 40 by the NAPABA, Jeannie Suk tells her heartfelt story. By sharing her old love for ballet, piano, and reading, she guides us to her passionate life and work and finally to the world "that she wanted to see." She decided to write this book because she was frequently asked to explain the connection between how she grew up and how she works and lives now. What world do we want to see? What is "education" in its true sense? What is "life" where one paves one’s own path? Through this clean and elegant memoir, we learn that one’s attitude and passion is the most important thing in life, and she suggests that we should be brave as we have freedom to be imperfect. Also she tells about her disciplines of life and work, one of which is to "find what you really love to do."
