For all the assignments, I really enjoyed the feedback and editing that I received. I also really love having my portfolio to look at as the end result. It's so rewarding to see what all my work looked like all together. It's something that I'm really proud of.

As far as hard skills go, I never knew how important SEO was until this course. I feel like the soft skills have helped me learn more about myself and what I'm capable of. They also taught me how to center my mindset, and not procrastinate when it comes to my goals. It was also great to meet all these amazing female entrepreneurs and professionals.
