So family, curiosity and hunger for knowledge all define me.”

And that, I think, might be one of the additional superpowers that, quite frankly, women who don’t ask for raises have. Because that’s good karma. It’ll come back. Because somebody’s going to know: ‘That’s the kind of person that I want to trust. That’s the kind of person that I want to really give more responsibility to.”

  • “Every time you think all the technology that had been created already, all you have to do is look around and then there’s someone new who’s born with a new idea.”
