Woman Quits Her Job At LinkedIn to Travel The World, Post Goes Viral

According to her LinkedIn profile, Ms. Monga worked at the company for six months from January to June as a Creator Manager Associate.

We all want to pursue their passion at one point or another in our lives – some people are able to do this by choosing a career that is similar to their passion while others end up choosing their passion in their career. A similar story of a Delhi woman who quit her job to follow her true passion, travel, is taking to the internet. She left her job in 2022 and reflected on her decision a year later.

Aakanksha Monga, who is now a content creator, took to Twitter on May 17 to share her story. She wrote, “I quit my job at LinkedIn. Last year on this day. When I left, I promised myself to give myself a year to focus on my passion and travel the world full time.” She added that she was extremely burnt out, worked alone and had around 2,50,000 followers on Instagram.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Ms. Monga worked at the company for six months from January to June 2022 as a Creative Manager Associate. In another tweet, Ms. Monga reflected on her journey a year later. She said that she “followed her truth”. “1 year later: 250K TO 700K + city, Traveled across 12 countries (8 of them solo!), Built a team of 6 people, built TravelAmore !, Shot & posted 300+ videos, Worked with 30+ brands,” she wrote in the post.

Ms Monga added that she is still burnt out at times and has to work longer hours.

Ever since it was shared on the microblogging platform, her post has garnered over 1.7 lakh views and over a thousand likes. “Make your passion your career, you will always be successful! Congratulations” said one user.

“You have inspired millions of people to follow their passions. Very respectful,” said another.

A third said, “It’s amazing! Following your passion and traveling the world all the time sounds incredible.”

However, some people have a different opinion about her decision.

A user added, “People with a huge safety net end up talking nonsense like this and make hard working people looks like non-achievers. Let her leave all her family wealth and talk about chasing passions.”

“Life of elites, dream of many…” said another person.
