Epiphany is often used interchangeable with “insight” ("insert link") or having an “aha moment”. It came from the Greek word, “epiphaneia”, which translates to “appearance” or “manifestation”.

For instance, a student had his epiphany when he realized that his future profession entails working with children after volunteering to help in a charity program for orphans.
