Someone who inspires you and knowledge they have imparted:
Wendy Wen, the founder of the handbag company I work for is a huge inspiration. She is an MIT alumni, who eventually started her own company. She is great because she gives me the courage to venture out and figure out what I want to do. I know I want to eventually start a company, but the path to get there is still very uncertain. The greatest thing she has ever told me was, “If you want to start a company, just do it.”
Challenge you’ve faced and how you overcame it:
I think the biggest decision I had to make was what college to go to. I wasn’t entirely sure about engineering, but choosing MIT was a bit more of a commitment to that. It was the best decision I have made and I am glad to have made both the professional and personal decision to go.
What knowledge would you impart to women in order for them to REIGN their lives?
Don’t be afraid to try new things and reach out to people! I think the best things that have happened to me have been a product of me just putting myself out there.
