Advise from Yen Yen to future leaders:

"Be curious as you enter the workforce. Curiosity opens up new worlds and possibilities. Everyday is fresh learning and challenging experience. Only when you admit that there are things that you don’t know, and are willing to learn, can you evolve and reinvent yourself and broaden your thinking."
