I’ve had the awesome opportunity to work with Kevin since February. As a foreign-born designer, my biggest challenge was that I’m not familiar with Western culture, especially in the work place. I used to be very quiet in meetings, check-ins, and any kind of meet-ups because I was afraid of ruining it by making grammatical mistakes.
Through more sessions, I was able to learn techniques for clarifying topic points in meetings when it’s not clear to me or when I’m struggling to understand what’s going on. If I hadn’t studied with Omni, I would still be in many unclear work situations, which is quite stressful. I’m truly grateful for Kevin’s helping me improve my situation at Pinterest!
