  • From my experience through the career transition, I would say don't hold back! Sometimes you need to put yourself out of your comfort zone to understand what you're capable of doing. I won't lie, it's hard but so worth it! Do your research and talk to alumni to get a perspective from someone who has experienced it.

  • If you want to make the switch and you're on the fence, my advice is to just do it! My only regret is that I didn't take the leap earlier. Change can be scary, and there is a lot of hard work involved. But it's true that you can do anything you set your mind to. We spend so much of our lives at work- it's important to be able to do something you love.
