What are your hopes for the next generation of women in tech?
My hope for the next generation of women in tech is that it is no longer "remarkable" to have women in tech because all the barriers and implicit biases against young girls in tech have been removed.
What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve ever received?
I've gotten a lot of great advice over the years, but two things have always stuck with me: 1. Always keep learning, and don't chase the money. If you are constantly learning, the money will follow. 2. If you dislike what you are doing 5 days in a row, you need to change what you are doing.
