Intern Talk by Selena Deckelmann

Mozilla has organized a series of talks for summer interns. The first was by Selena Deckelmann, Director of Firefox Runtime.

These are some memorable points to think about:

  • Creating a circle of work advisers
  • Write down your dreams
  • Do the hard thing (find a hard problem to tackle)
  • Listen to criticism, sometimes

On her slide deck, the slide that shows periods leading to realizing dreams also coincides with periods of struggle. I have to wonder whether I am not struggling enough(?).
