Madeline Griswold: How Computer Science Made Me Brave - https://www.ted.com/talks/madeline_griswold_how_computer_science_made_me_braveI discovered this TED talk as part of my Computer Science certificate (we had to watch a TED talk about our related discipline and discuss it) and Madeline Griswold's presentation truly inspired me! As someone making a career change into tech, I've doubted myself, my chosen path, etc. But her presentation gave me a sort of certainty, a kind of courage that after I finished my Computer Science certificate, I am now enrolling in my second bachelors degree, this time in Computer Science!
