Do you have a motto in life?
The one that sticks with me today and has really helped is: “This too shall pass.”
It’s a motto to keep in mind, especially when you're going through challenges in life, or even if you’re on an amazing high, that the feeling you currently have will pass.
Ultimately, it’s really about realising you can get through the hard times and the good times are just around the corner.
Any words of advice you’d pass on?
Give everything a go. Don't hold back on new experiences or new challenges. Everyone is happy being comfortable, but actually, you get more out of being challenged. It’s where you'll find your growth as an individual.
There's nothing to be lost in trying something new, but there's everything to be gained.
If you had your time again, is there anything you'd do differently?
Yes and no. No, because everything I have done and the mistakes I have made have made me the person I am. But yes, because maybe I am the type of person who would have been better going straight into the workforce.
I grew up in an age where there was almost a path written out for you. Everyone I knew had to go to university.
But now, I think that experience in industry is invaluable and you may have an edge if you have the experience of starting something yourself, or just getting into a company and putting in the hours and learning everything you can about that particular business and industry.
What does the future hold?
I think businesses will be using a lot more AI from a productivity standpoint, as well as a learning standpoint. I think people will lean on AI tools to deliver so many things in the future, so it’s a really interesting area.
For me, I just want to continue to add more strings to my bow. So now, it’s about learning more about project management and progressing in the company.
One day I’d like to run my own business. Whether that's in the digital world, or it's in a completely different space, I feel that’s where I will eventually end up.
