Mingyi Zheng

We asked women at Warwick to submit an image of themselves for inclusion in the Warwick Women's Montage and a short description of the challenges they've faced/continue to face and how they're dealing with them.

See Mingyi's submission below:

"When being rejected so many times when applying for jobs, I often feel less confident and I'm not that competitive compared with those who are older and had more working experiences. Recently, I learned an amazing mindset from the Sprint program, which is 'fake it until you make it'. It's not faking something that you are not, but to practice what you want to become. Meanwhile, even if you failed, it's okay, because people may laugh at you at that moment but nobody really takes it seriously, not to mention they may also be caught up in their own problems. The only one who stays up late at night thinking about that stupid scene could be me. So don't be afraid to dream a little bigger and be confident to get started on what you want to do."
