If you’re not learning you’re kinda not living. Life is all about how you evolve over time. The world is always changing, there’s always new ideas out there and if you’re able to relate or see some potential in those ideas, that’s the best situation.
— Gintel Gee

Gintel Gee is a badass carving her own path.  Raised in South Central LA by families with one focused on achieving excellence and one focused on finding hustle & joy, early in her life it became clear to her the importance to always be learning, to serve your community, and to chase what makes you happy. She’s a high performer who stands out in her industry of UX Design by gender and race.  She’s real, she’s authentic and she’s wise. On this episode she shares how she keeps discovering her path, why being ready never happens, why we all love Beyonce, and that real life has both ups and downs and that’s where you find your confidence and true self. There’s so much good stuff in this episode you need to listen through to the end. It’s never been more of a challenge to pick an intro quote because the nuggets of wisdom just kept coming.

Favorite Quote:
George Bernard Shaw "men get tired of everything, of heaven no less than of hell; and that all history is nothing but a record of the oscillations of the world between these two extremes. An epoch is but a swing of the pendulum; and each generation thinks the world is progressing because it is always moving." From Man and Superman
