“The Confidence Gap” (Atlantic article)
“I don’t necessarily have to be making a statement, but as long as I am asking a question, learning and garnering as much information as I can, that’s enough of having a voice to be invited to the table.” -Ms. Ross
“When you’re looking at these different opportunities you say ‘is that something that I can be passionate about? Is that something I am going to love, that I am going to get up every morning and do every single day?”- Ms. Ross
“Confidence doesn’t equal competence, but it does equal perceived confidence.” -Ms. Ross
