What's the best advice you would give to current students?
"Trust yourself. Listen to the voice in your head -- whether it's telling you to ""apply for that position!"" or ""please, PLEASE take a break"" -- you know yourself best. Have the confidence to go for the roles you want and know you'll do great in, but also have the self-awareness to take a step back when you need to.
I loved being heavily involved in the community, but I don't know if I would've managed to stay active had I not taken a much-needed break. Burnout is a real and common thing among the community leaders. Put yourself first, because the community will only benefit more from your mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing."
