Confidence, I can honestly say that this is something that is a constant battle but BIMA 100 boosted that. Shanice

1. Describe how it felt to be named as one of the BIMA 100?

It was such a pleasure, a real amazing feeling because I never thought i'd be named top 100 so early in my career. :)

2. What’s the single biggest impact being part of the BIMA 100 has had on you?

Confidence, I can honestly say that this is something that is a constant battle but BIMA 100 boosted that.

3. How have you benefitted from interacting with other BIMA 100 members?

I think just the simple understanding of what others do and how others are also making waves within the industry. It's just super inspiring.

4. Complete the sentence: I would recommend nominating someone you know for the BIMA 100 because 

... you never know what impact that might have on them, and it's a real genuine nomination.

5. Complete the sentence: Being a part of the BIMA 100 has been an invaluable experience because 

... you can't feel what you don't know or haven't yet experienced. I didn't know that I would feel more confident or inspired, but I did :)
