Sweet but Fearless Podcast

Jul 11, 2022

In this episode, we talk with Digital Transformation and Lean-Agile Coach for Banco Itau, Jennifer Sousa Freitas. Her sage advice of never letting anyone, including your inner voice, tell you want you can’t or can do comes straight from the heart. As a young girl growing up in Brazil, she was told that “computers are not for girls.” Focusing on what she liked, she discovered her reason and learned that computers (and STEM) are for everyone. It’s all about self-knowledge. You have to listen and pay attention to what you like and what you’re good at. Doing that and you will find that thing that “shines your eyes.”

Listen to Jennifer’s personal journey and be inspired to be your fearless self!
