Discussion on: Does your background make your work unique?

Hey! Interesting article! I can definitely agree with our backgrounds making us unique. I'm self-taught and going full stack but most people don't know I'm studying and majoring in Kinesiology and Physical Education full-time. The people skills I get from the healthcare line of work are much appreciated in the tech field (I've seen too many mean comments on StackOverFlow over the simplest things)! On the side, I also breakdance, do martial arts, write, build projects, participate in hackathons, and take foodie adventures down the streets of Toronto. Honestly, being more multifaceted is the way to go #2020!

Completely agree! And the tech industry could definitely use more people skills :)
