Yan Fan ยท  Creating Coding Bootcamps to Fuel Passion in Tech

โ€œI know a lot of people say like, just do it, but I really don't believe that that's like a good advice because people just come from so many different backgrounds and so many different advantages or disadvantages. It's really disingenuous to say, like, just do it. You know? I think like my advice is, to stay focused on doing one thing very well. I think like, you know, riches are in the niches. Like, if you can find something that you really like and that you feel like it's making a difference, not to like tons and tons of people, but maybe it's just a small group of people, focus on that.โ€
