“I have always stood for excellence, fun, transparency, vulnerability, those are all the things that I think make a great leader. And at the time, when I worked on some of those projects, or some of those titles that you mentioned, I was not the leader of the ship, I was a part of a team. But I knew what I felt like was great leadership then and I'm really grateful to embody the things I always loved about certain leadership, and also the things I know really works in terms of moving forward with a team.”
