Arianna says she knows women don’t always apply for jobs unless they think they meet all the qualifications. “From experience,” she says, “women should go for it.”

“Always go for it. Don’t be afraid to fail,” she said. “Take classes that might not apply to you.

Don’t be afraid to try something new. It’s all a learning experience, and it’s the only way you’ll grow.”
