Ernesto Rodríguez

“Don’t be afraid. Always listen to your colleagues especially people with more experience. There’s a reason they are there. It’s a really unforgiving market, making a mistake can be very costly so be careful. Also, don’t be afraid to fight for what you want, and just because you are young, don’t underestimate yourself. Prove everyone wrong if they believe you are less than them. Be brave and keep working.”
