One of the best books I have ever read is called The Soul of a New Machine by Tracy Kidder. A nonfiction text about engineering, this book would be a great recommendation for individuals interested in computers and engineering! The next one waiting in my reading list is Tracers in the Dark by Andy Greenberg.
If I could have any career for just one day, I would be a teacher to make a difference in the lives of potential students.
One thing that has been on my bucket list for a while is to visit Alaska. I love traveling to new and interesting places, and Alaska has always fascinated me because I heard the scenery is incredible, and I would like to see the Northern Lights.
If I could give my past self any advice, it would be to worry less about what happens in the future.
In my opinion, the most important innovation in my lifetime is the personal computer. Personal computers have changed everything about society—from the way we work, communicate, search for information, to how we entertain ourselves and others, and do business. They have created new businesses and changed others, and paved a way for numerous innovations for the future.
My personal motto is “I can do anything.” You need to think positively and be confident.
I would like the ability to learn languages easily. Specifically, I would like to learn the language of the places/countries I will travel in next. I just came back from Norway, and not knowing the Norwegian language diminished a little bit the experience of being there. Not only does it allow me to learn about the lifestyle of different cultures, but even communicate with those who I have never interacted with before!
To me, the most important core value is communication. Within our remote work situation, it is vital that communication between our teams remain strong and effective. How we communicate has a direct impact on how well we start a task, navigate problems, and change over time.
