I’d been following Holly’s account for a while but decided to take the plunge and reach out to her for some advice. I sent a rather long and rambling message asking Holly for some advice after having a wobbly two weeks at work (I had a career change recently and was a few months into my first job as a software engineer). Her response was SO helpful and made me feel so much better about myself. Firstly, she made me realise that it’s okay and normal to get these feelings sometime. Secondly, Holly gave me some practical steps to take when approaching a new problem or difficult task and also some good ways to ask colleagues those ‘silly’ questions (but no question is silly!). I really appreciated the fact that Holly took the time to respond to me and send me a personal response rather than just a stock response and enabled me to kick my new week with positive vibes!!
