Discussion on: Does your background make your work unique?

Absolutely! I think the best ideas come to those who are curious and draw inspiration from a mix of divergent experiences. My background includes a brief stint in 3-D animation to starting and operating a specialty grocery store, for example. (!) I think if you can harness curiosity, a willingness to experiment, and continue learning you are more resilient and creative.

I think so too! I believe it's important to seek diverse experiences and broaden your horizons to be a more complete developer and person.
Thanks for sharing, Katie! 😊
