“It’s very, very natural to feel those feelings of fear and imposter syndrome and all those things. So courage is not the absence of those things. Courage is, Yes, I am afraid right now. Yes, I’m terrified. Yes, this feels scary. But this means something to me and I care about this, so I’m going to do it anyway. Courage is trusting in your ability to figure things out.” – Samra Zafar
