In this episode, we talk to Reshma Saujani, the Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in computer science and technology. We learn what inspired her new book, 'Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, and Live Bolder' and why it's so important to take chances, embrace the unknown, and unlearn perfectionism. As Reshma says, "we need to start doing things we suck at", like going to a dance class for fun even when we know we're going to be the worst one in there, in order to learn to embrace imperfection and failure. She believes that by gaining resilience and making bravery a lifelong habit, we will lead much happier and more fulfilled lives.
