My Take Away’s FromToday’s Episode:
You don’t have to be in a school setting to learnsomething new, there are no limits
You don’t have to the entire picture in yourmind before you start, you could have a basic roadmap and follow your passion,it leads to amazing places
Its okay to have doubts, but don’t let it stopyou. You just have to keep working hard.
One of the ways to fight impostor syndrome is toremind yourself of what you have done and what you can do.
Whatever you do, make sure your reasons areright and trust me it will work for the best.
Demystifying theMyths
The myth another that says coding is hard is lying to you. Ifyou believe you can learn you can learn, you will encounter challenges, but youhave to be patient with your own process, everyone moves at their own pace. Thereis no sure way of learning something.
