"Going back to school for electrical engineering later in life was a major confidence booster for me. It is never too late to start something new. I also like to practice gratitude. I have a note on my mirror that says "3 Things". It reminds me to think of 3 things that I'm grateful for. Some days are easier than others to think of 3 things, but with practice it gets easier."
"You will always be able to add value to a project, meeting, or team. No one is the expert at everything, and diversity of ideas and thought is more valuable. You belong wherever you are; figure the rest out as you go."
“Changing my mindset from a fear of failure to looking at risks and failure as an opportunity to learn has greatly improved my confidence and resilience in various situations.”
“Pi515 has given me the opportunity to see a thriving environment and workplace. I'm able to meet passionate people, be part of a team, and work alongside others who also strive for the future they want.”
