Chance encounters happen anywhere at anytime. Sometimes these encounters are for the better, and sometimes they are for the worst, but you must always be open and ready to embrace them.
On my trip to Dallas my best friend and I spent three days enjoying A-KON (an anime convention held every year at Dallas for anime fans from all over). It was during this amazing convention that the chance encounter happened for my friend and set her up for her next few years at college.
After enjoying lunch we struck up a conversation with a woman sitting next to us about the amazing picture of Captain America and Tony Stark she had. During our conversation we discovered that the woman was actually an advisor at the college my friend is transferring to for the coming fall semester. Completely by chance she was able to meet her college advisor at an anime convention.
You never know when the person your sitting next to may be the key to having a step up in college or your career in Dallas or Canyon, TX. Always be open, start conversations, and put yourself out there. It’s a lesson I am still learning and one that could help everyone.
