Importance of Episode
- Knowing Christine Gambito as one of the first successful Youtubers known for her channel, “Happy Slip”, this episode teaches us that the road to success is not only a journey of skill and talent but rather an understanding of one’s identity. As a celebrated Filipino-American comedian, Christine attributes her identity as a wife, mother, and Christian as her measure of her own success. We learn that success should not be looked at as a linear timeline to achieve our goals but rather a “failing journey” where we must trust in the ways that life redirects us into paths that are better suited for our natural talents.
