My biggest hurdle was the fear of not being good enough. The fear of imposter syndrome – taking the risk to put myself out there. I had to learn a different language – which is tech. To code switch between public policy and engineers is challenging. It can be intense and driven. That’s why it’s important to have clear thinking and be 100% present. I was the second hire of the team in this region. From 20 people when I first joined, there are over 200 people now.
We are just at the beginning of bringinging financial services to the communities. I aim to explore places that are overlooked. I hope to build better products and be a thought leader in the financial/ fintech space.
