When Leah Pearlman was four years old, she decided she would go to an Ivy League college because she'd heard those were the best, yet she had no idea what that really meant. She spent the next thirteen years striving and sacrificing to achieve that goal. After college, Learlman continue to do the "right" things, including working at Facebook and developing the "Like" button. Eventually, she began to ask herself what really mattered to her and to listen to that voice inside. Her story here may lead one to wonder: am I living my life this way because someone else told me to? What if you instead began to live the life you want to create for yourself?
