I hated learning Latin. When I was in seventh grade memorizing Virgil’s poems with my Viennese classmates, I had no idea the phrase novus ordo seclorum is on the back of every dollar bill. I had no idea I would one day move to the United States and build a family, no idea I would have to renew my own self to adapt to America, and most certainly no idea that I would have the privilege of walking through the golden doors of the New York Stock Exchange every day for eight years, working in the vortex of change.
