Know your worth, but be humble. Never stop learning. Remember your roots.
Don’t be afraid to take chances. Be vulnerable. Find success in failure. Laugh. Stay healthy.
Don’t let comparison steal the satisfaction of your own life and know that perfection can be the biggest enemy of progress.

It's a tool, just like any other, and so we have the choice on how we wield it and how it affects our lives.
You have to be consistent, keep trying, keep trying and keep trying. Quality matters.
Always advocate for your work and make sure that others understand how it impacts them.
There's something out there for anyone interested in tech, it's about understanding our strengths
Reminding myself that all problems are solvable, shifts my state of mind into curiosity and creativity and problem-solving.
