Hakunamatata

Taylor Skinner
Class of 2010
International Affairs and Commerce

My life philosophy is all about taking everything in stride. Anger, hate, and sadness take too much energy, and stress is a waste of time. I try to make a conscious effort to remain happy, positive, and carefree regardless of my workload or circumstances. Since no English phrase succinctly captures my philosophy, I opted for the Swahili phrase "Hakuna-Matata": it means no worries.
