Don't be afraid to be the idiot in the room during meetings.

One of the most exciting part was being able to have some of the very down-to-earth conversations with CEOs. Initially, I thought they would only reveal the best version of themselves, little did I knew that they were willing to share some of their most difficult and challenging times they had and how they came out of it to achieve where they are now. It was inspiring to see how far they have come and inspires me to do the same.

I really enjoyed that fact we were able to make something out of nothing and bring that life. It really touches me that taking actions while thinking about an idea is way more important than just dwelling on the idea. It seems very intuitive but in reality we get so caught with our own thoughts and opinions and rarely take a step forward and see how things actually play out. Most of the time, it is about the willingness and passion to do something rather than whether you can actually do it or not.
