The Ceiling Can't Hold Us

  1. 1. THE CEILING CAN’T HOLD US JULIA GRACE HEAD OF ENGINEERING @ TINDIE @JEWELIA
  2. 2. Make the money, don't let the money make you. Change the game, don't let the game change you. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
  3. 3. So how we going to change the game? THROW OUT EVERYTHING YOU KNOW.
  4. 4. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO BE “WHEN YOU GROW UP” (AT LEAST AT THIS MOMENT). STAY TRUE TO THAT. RECRUITERS, THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS
  5. 5. DON’T PUT YOURSELF IN A BOX. BESIDES, THE BOX IS PROBABLY TOO SMALL FOR YOUR AWESOMENESS! THROW AWAY YOUR 1 MINUTE PITCH
  6. 6. DON’T COMPARE YOUR INSIDES TO OTHER PEOPLE’S OUTSIDES. SUPERWOMAN DOESN’T EXIST. IT’S OKAY.
  7. 7. DON’T APOLOGIZE AND DON’T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN YOURSELF. PLEASE DON’T BE “NICE”
  8. 8. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR GREAT TECHNICAL SKILLS. EXTRA CREDIT CAN HURT YOU
  9. 9. SUCCESS TAKES MANY FORMS. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A MANAGER TO GO FAR AND BE “SUCCESSFUL”. IF YOU LOVE YOGA, DON’T BECOME A YOGA TEACHER
  10. 10. Haters gonna hate! THERE ARE MORE HATERS THAN CHEERLEADERS. IGNORE THE HATERS. EMBRACE THE CHEERLEADERS.
  11. 11. A STRONG SENSE OF SELF- AWARENESS. THE ONE THING THAT IS MOST KEY
  12. 12. They say to be wise, is to know what you don’t know. Pitbull
  13. 13. Check me out, I’m an engineer. A mathematician, technician and a visioneer. A scientist, the m**f** nerd! The rebirth, the clue, f**what you heard! Will.i.am
  14. 14. BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE ADVICE YOU TAKE. TALK IS CHEAP. DON’T JUST BELIEVE ME
  15. 15. Thank You! @jewelia
