My biggest hurdle was coming into tech. I already had a family with two children so I couldn’t just make a sudden change without much consideration. It took me 2 years to tell myself that it was okay to leave a comfortable job that is stable and pursue something that I really liked. That’s when the struggle began. When I decided to pick up a job in UX, I got rejected quite a number of times. Emotionally, it was quite painful and it took me a while to tell myself that it was going to be okay.
