Toan Lam of San Francisco will tell you that reaching your goal in life isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Lam had always dreamed of being a big-market television reporter and by time he was 30, he had reached it, reporting for a Bay Area television station.
Still, Lam found that the job , while feeding his bank account, wasn't satisfying his soul. A near-daily dose of reporting on death and destruction left him empty inside. So Lam made a switch. He left the television career behind, and started a non-profit, Go Inspire Go.
Lam now uses the video journalist skills he honed after years of working in TV news, to tell a very different type of story.
Watch his story above.
