@wongweezy, your talk on self worth was sincere and firmly rooted in experience, hard work and millions of agonizing gut checks (so we don’t have to). The hustle is real, but you taught me to own who I am in and out of the day-to-day grind. It was the best presentation, only because I could see that so many young and diverse professionals understood themselves a lot better by hearing you speak.
— Hershell Taghap, re: Seattle Interactive Conference
