Meeting with Meg was like meeting with an old friend. Her warm and attentive demeanor made it very easy for me to open up to her about my challenges in navigating my career. As a freelancer who has worked in TV production for almost 10 years, I explained to Meg how I’d been wanting to transition into film for some time but not without being met with obstacles.
During our meeting, she was able to help me list out tools that would better assist me with long and short-term goals. Not long after our meeting, I applied for an opportunity in LA and was made an offer, and will be taking a chance on myself for the first time in a very long time. Meg’s tools truly helped and I am grateful.
An immersive software engineering bootcamp comes with many moments where you feel like you’re in unknown territory. In that time of uncertainty, Meg always reached out to remind me that I wasn’t alone and that I had someone to talk to. There was a point where the stress of multiple projects, deadlines, imposter syndrome, and missing home made me feel completely overwhelmed. Meg was there to listen to me and she helped me organize my jumbled mind which empowered me to take back control of my time and, most importantly, myself. She always communicates with transparency and has helped me conquer the fears that held me back.
