What Would You Tell Your Younger Self?
Be courageous and trust your instincts – they are as good as anybody else’s.
Over time and with maturity, we learn to support our instincts with experiences, prestige, titles, and more.

It wasn’t until I had the strength of will to speak up and fight for the ideas that I believed were the right ones directionally that I began to understand how powerful and accurate my ideas truly were.
