If you’re pas­sion­ate about some­thing, just go for it. In 2015, I did many things I have never done be­fore: I spoke at con­fer­ences, taught classes and or­gan­ised com­mu­nity events. As an anx­ious in­tro­vert, in­ter­act­ing with oth­ers (strangers!) reg­u­larly is ex­tremely dif­fi­cult for me. I worked hard to push my­self out of my com­fort zone. Do­ing so al­lowed me to gain con­fi­dence, opened up more op­por­tu­ni­ties in my pro­fes­sional life, and bettered my per­sonal life.
