My Take Away from Today’s Episode
- Our experiences shape us for the journey ahead
- Most times we underestimate our abilities and capabilities
- Once we get a taste of what we can do and the value we bring, the possibilities are limitless
- To design you need to study other people’s design, know what works in them and improve on your own style
- Just keep on doing what you know best to do, stay committed and dedicated, it will pay off.
Demystifying the Myths
The myth that females cannot thrive in Tech or design is wrong, women and ladies are well able and capable to thrive in the Creative Industry.
