Stefan Krasowski on Visiting All 193 UN Countries
"Steffan Krzyzewski come from Minnesota in the US. I've I just recently gotten to one ninety three. UN countries which is why we're talking today. You bring me back for follow up. But I'm happy to be here I don't remember that comment but I'm glad to have you back and curious to hear a little bit of your final part of the journey and I just wanted overview a couple of different different things to remind the listener Remind us again. Why the love of travel was the catalyst what spurred your love for expiration in discovery like many many in my boat there? There's a collecting background. Where you you get interested in collecting different things and I did not travel much coach growing up? My parents not not active travelers so it was my high school junior year trip to China. We had started studying Chinese Back in fifth grade grade and went to China and traveled around and it was just eye-popping exciting thrilling and so as soon as I could I went to college and University of Pennsylvania Wharton School Philadelphia but spent semesters in Shanghai and Hong Kong and then moved to China right after graduating college. And the you've been in Hong Kong. I arranged at ride classes three days a week and just every every Wednesday night I would head the Shenzhen. See what buster overnight train rain was leaving in hop somewhere new and got addicted traveling in China going every province in in the country. And then step-by-step expanding out to the region and the wider world pulled out of curiosity. You didn't come from travel family. What's your family? Think of what you've done what you've accomplished in the travel world world totally supportive. Do they think you're a little crazy. What's going on when you get together for Thanksgiving? Oh I've got one wonderful parents sand and Brother who's a doctor and a scientist who's WHO's very different although we both Studied Chinese at the the same starting and he studied in China in highschool so my parents Prince of been extremely big about education that they work worked to put put us into the best schools that that we could get ourselves into an and get that environment and Mother reading to me every night Even when I developed an interest in books like James Bond or Tarzan in bucks as a as a first or second grader that would have pretty racy stuff she wouldn't our through and and Be Happy to expose me to to new ideas. A Matt so the circumstances weren't for for them to be traveling a huge amount growing up but they're always been very supportive and and As as both my brother and I got older than the I was living in China my parents did start traveling and in quite a quite a lot of times they visited me. TRAVELLED AROUND DOWN SO my father's a adult of million miler now so it's it's certainly not not anti travel in out of curiosity whose commander and his better yours or your brother. I should hope it's me because I still go back several times a year and actively do stuff with China and he hasn't significantly kept up with it since since going into medical school. I mean I know he did say at the time that Learning Anatomy class was pretty easy Z.. For him when when he had been studying Chinese characters for some time but when he was when he was at his best to you. As far beyond me reading classical Chinese the It's it's it's much more different than than say Latin. It was never a spoken language. The written Classical texts are incredibly hard. Pardon any was brilliant that I can. I can get through the first few sentences of the Dow ditching and and that which is which is hard enough but He was he was way beyond me as scholar. Could use to your brother in and Stephan. What was that inflection point? So you explain how you really were taking advantage of semesters abroad in Hong Kong China the region starting to explore like crazy. What was the moment when you decided to chase when ninety three? What was that light bulb moment? It was. It was somewhere around Azerbaijan Georgia Armenia trip that I took from China on one one of the holiday weeks that that China has an at that point I was had been to just about every country in Asia and and was loving it than in seeing the possibility awesome -bility of doing much more in learning learning about frequent flyer programs which was making some of these possible Places like the caucuses were connected to China. Southern routes in Chai from China and Could use my north west and then later when they became Delta Delta Miles on on these is trips so things that I thought were previously unattainable for time or cost reasons were suddenly feasible and and And I never I never had an interest to be a full time traveler even if I had unlimited resources for that I push myself very hard on trips. The I've I've taken several three week trips Only wash twice longer. Once a four week I think in the that was in Central and west Africa and a five week around the Pacific and I was so exhausted after three weeks of pushing myself that that is the the long term travel all thing wouldn't wouldn't fit for me and and professionally isn't isn't where my interest lies and and certainly not as it is where my marriage marriage would be taking me so the I like short intense trips. It but was there a day where you sat around and counted up the country's on the map happen you saw that you're at fifty or a hundred and then you read an article. What was that final? Push where you said okay. I've done this now. I can do that. There was more of a a different back back to that other by John. Looked at within. The cost was to get to Nakhichevan which is a separate part of other by John that on the Traveler Century Club list as a separate territory and it was it now? It's quite easy to visit in affordable all and more flights at that point it was it was looking that expensive and I decided I'm not going to get addicted to a crazy list like that and subsequently I've ended knocked divide and gotten addicted to that list but it was It wasn't it was it was Wasn't necessarily one day except perhaps perhaps when I got got to eat team more. So that was the last country in Asia that I hadn't been to and did say I went to to all this trouble to get east team or deal with Indonesian and flights which wonderful delightful country in many ways except traveling Logistically is Is One where a lot of things. Don't go to plan and and So once I got to East Timor as I'm going for the UN Stephan. You're last on counting countries actually November of twenty sixteen eighteen. And you're at one hundred eighty six countries at that point. But you didn't finish your you analyst until August of Twenty nineteen in for some travelers. That's a lifetime Some travelers as we know have done all one hundred ninety three during that same time period. So you took your time to finish off the last seven countries I want to focus on four of your final five two of them. I found pretty surprising in two. I didn't so your final countries was Italy. How did Italy early of all countries end up being one of your last countries? There were three that I was saving to the end of Italy Greece and Turkey and and Mainly not not so much animus. I'm really WANNA have a big party or something. It wasn't that it's it's I'm history is my favorite subject fascinated with ancient history. And all of those three are are are so special in central to to world history and world world civilizations that I wanted to to save them to really enjoy lavish in terms of time and and Destinations destinations trips to go. So that that was the original thinking and then What will get into why I got stuck on on a couple of others and so then finally I just? I just couldn't wait. These are wonderful places that I'll visit multiple times in my life but That that that roughly was the idea As well as the flip side is after seeing so many ancient Roman ruins in North Africa. That have this kind of thinking. Why should I go to Italy and see the crowds? But you know that's just that's just one of the ten thousand different things that are fantastic by deadly to to go see show as a history buff. You mentioned Italy Turkey Greece. What's a highlight for you? Visiting those countries by all of all of the above. I mean it's it's just incredible. How you You could pretty pick pick any point on the map and see multiple layers of of incredible history I mean what I. I walked off the plane Lina in Milan. I had booked the trip like a week before last minute and I can only get one one ticket to the last temptation Or the Last Supper or the last supper painting and and I had like an hour and fifteen minutes from touchdown in Milan Malpensa to to getting getting getting in the door picked up a rental car drove as far as I could into the city abandoned the car where other people were illegally. Ugly parks hopped on the subway and guide in and saw that and and So Italy I've really I've really just started. I've been a bit in the North's I've I've seen the Vatican again but I haven't properly visited row. I've been around Sicily different territories in. It's it's just pick your pick your time in history Greece more specifically the ancient In the ancient era I mean I just gets it gets incredible to. You're just driving down the road and you see the road sign Its Tab obeys in the ancient Also known as thieves. And now it's just a a scruffy scruffy town but just pull off the road and spend the night there because these names out of history are incredible and and the answer Turkey Turkey. I took a A road trip from von the famous Lake van in the Armenian Indian churches in the East and drove all the way across the country The the more or less southern route through the Kurdish areas than around the Jian coast and So many eras of history from the first Essentially I city of multi-level housing and that goes back back. Thousands of years all the way up to the modern times. I mean it's just I just couldn't i. I had take UNESCO sites off the list because there's only so many you you can see in a day it's It's incredible and Turkey actually. has this fantastic museum pass system where you can get the countrywide one or you can get one. That's for a week league or are some regional ones arrest Boland's and the prices are so low and every mega site in the countries included. It's it's not like many countries where the tour pass includes everything except the one really must see

Everything fell to pieces both in good ways about ways at music. The music disintegrated and facilitates into a billion different things. So it's impossible to say this is the sound of the time that is captured. The moments that it doesn't happen anymore that everybody lives in their entire entirely sort of separates had medically sealed genre bubbles and but also I think it's a it was a time when the public realm realm the wheel. Shed sometimes finally properly replaced by million private realms. All you know create by social media bills created by your political bubbles and I it it it created a world where every body is only talking to a version of themselves. The other thing depressing sauna. Hi Sean John. Is the caving in pop culture as well as real culture et. You've gotta get used to losing all the time.

From Shy Girl to Confidence Coach
"Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself and about your story and how you went from being being a quote shy person to confidence coach. Yeah for sure And you know I'll take like three full days to tell you the whole story but so I am currently confidence and empowerment coach. So I work with women who really struggle with the shyness and insecurity and we work together to to help build that self confidence that level of self love and that spiritual lightning because I really believe that that is an integral part of building your self confidence. This is kind of learning to know yourself in that facet. So that's what I do. I'm also a wife and Mama. I've got a two year old daughter named avery. And she is just a firecracker absolute light of my life and so so much what. I'm learning and teaching my clients. I'm also trying to instill in her everyday. So she grows up to be a confident woman who loves herself so it's just a little bit about me on top of that I also podcast. I am may artsy kind of design freak. I've got an se shop where I create great journaling tools and workbooks and things along those lines from a creative outlet so it's a little bit of like Jane of all trades but that's that's an overview of kind of who I am and what I'm doing now I'm but in terms of my own journey I grip a really shy kid. I say say painfully shy because I just felt so uncomfortable in my own skin and I mean I would be afraid to order food at a restaurant restaurant or ask somebody what time it was because I was so terrified of getting some sort of a negative reaction from people and that that transpired very much into junior high and high school where it's a tough time for most girls that age and I just really struggled with knowing knowing my own worth and feeling like I was of any worth or value to my friendships and that kind of transpired into adult relationships and also me being able to speak up or not speak up. I guess it would say in the workplace so a really battled in struggled many different levels of insecurity especially around like authority figures. So that's something we could even dive into but there came a point in my in my journey I had just been broken up within cheated on by boyfriend of three years and kind of forced my hand to really take a look at who I wanted to be wary. Wanted my life to go and it was Truthfully one of the best things to ever ever happened happened Mu despite it being such shitty time but it was It was the kickstart of a fitness journey. A spiritual spiritual journey and a personal development journey. That has just gone into the most beautiful whirlwind of of this just. I don't even explain Lina. This explosion of growth over the last eight years now and so over time. I've learned a lot about myself a lot about who I WANNA be. And I've gained a significant amount of tools and practice in terms of of stepping into this person. I am today today and it's just I feel like it's just beginning awesome. Yeah I discovered you through my friend Kelly and she told me about one of your webinars that I attended with with her And it was just so cool because I really resonate with your story like being a shy person. I think I've kind of overcome that in the last couple of years a little bit. It definitely not as shy as I used to be but I really liked the workshop that you did online and could you tell us a little bit more about that in the other ways you work with with clients. Yeah absolutely I believe the one that you you had done with me was Basically how to speak with confidence. So how show up in front of a room or in front of a crowd or in a presentation and really feel prepared and confident in yourself or even stepping on Oppressing live going live on social media on videos youtube even doing things like podcasters so common nowadays for so many people especially young young entrepreneurs and I've come across a tons of people who are so terrified to do things like that and I've I've one thousand percent Ben there and so I have in my past job as a personal trainer working in the fitness industry. I'm somewhat still affiliated with it but I would have to often present in front of my peers and my bosses and even the CEO of May company every once in a while. And I felt like like every time I had to do that. I was going to Shit my pants. I was so nervous like sick to my stomach over it but I learned a lot of tools over time. I and I did a lot of things to help. Prepare myself for those so that I would show up. I would give it a hundred and ten percent and honestly crush it every single time. So that's another thing that I help people with How how Excuse me how to have hard conversations how to have hard conversations uncertain as a because. That's another thing that a lot of people struggle with is really how to convey how they're are feeling when the stakes are high. Had A have you can call it a fierce conversation a tough conversation. Crucial conversations conversation. I've learned how to approach really touchy subjects with people and be able to communicate what you're feeling why you're feeling it what you hope to get out of the solution and not feel like you're going to either Krummel in the middle of that conversation or avoid it altogether because you're worried about what the other person is thinking and I think everybody can identify with having that problem at some point in their life because it's scary it's scary to to have these tough conversations when the stakes are higher when they're some maybe a lot of risks so I mean that's come from having to have tough conversations in my own relationships ships from working with clients in the fitness industry talking to them about the the real the realism of them reaching certain goals and not taking taking the appropriate actions. And that's also come from me being in higher level management in having to either terminate people or tell somebody what they need need to do in order to continue to work with us on the team so again a lot of it is coming from personal practice and of course you know tools that I've picked APP from my own mentors and other resources like you know coaching courses in Buxton podcast and all that stuff. Wow and so what do you find that. It's tools tools that help people gain that confidence or do you feel like it's just putting small things into practice over time I think it's actually more mindset Sir than anything but I think having tools in your back pocket is a comfort. It's a comforting thing it helps you feel like okay. That's that's kind of what I needed in order to feel prepared in Infield confident and I think that those are kind of like training wheels if that makes any sense like doing the things that talk about. Let's say in preparation for a speaking engagement. there's a lot of little steps that you can do but over the time I think if you can just sit down for two minutes before you go onstage and breath intention and set your intention for how you want it to go you will be just as successful in. You can feel justice confidence so I think it's more mindset and your ability to trust yourself but using those tools tools for a period of time as they as they become more natural I think that helps you cultivate that trust in yourself.

"lina" Discussed on The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
"Being Batman Jessica Abel throw in packers tickets and I was like I love football soccer but they wanted me to come speak and it was like November or December and I'm like that actually I hear you sort of I agree I mean there's a debates how what the best way to my dad was the most avid fan and he would prefer to watch him at home and there is a huge percentage of packer fans that believe that because you have oh you're so into it I'll say it's a very loud stadium to it is but you also get so stressed starting to win or lose it and so you pacing and it's the worst thank you Texas football yeah yeah but we you guys are you have eighteen layers of clothes on and we have yeah very item because we're sweating people like you guys with no shirts have you ever seen those crazy but actually you know what I'm going to say this about Texas Long Games I'll go to the Games I'll take me and my kids forty one yeah I see these college girls walking around like they're about to go to the club that's funny and they're going to football game on my girlfriend put some clothes on right so this is my little Madonna just just my church PSA for the young ones okay so ended up in Green Bay senior high school yeah fifteen though you're gone do you go to college right if I did I went I went to college and delivered were Christians in other words we grew up my mom came to Christ in college and so she started the she was Greek Orthodox so she wasn't church they would go a couple times a year and very religious in some ways but no faith no trust in the Lord Jesus says Personal Savior Anna's board of our life and so she has that change in college through reading and Saint Augustine's confessions made a huge back in her life so she ends up marrying my dad who was a very good Greek Orthodox but not a follower of Jesus but we grew up in a very missionary church like my mom had quiet time with US I came to Christ through that time Hewitt shared docile this and we grew up going to church move to Green Bay and went to camp the your after my senior so I moved July went to high school and I went to Camp and really the Lord got a hold of my heart in a very personal way then I knew intellectually I actually had received Christ I remember being a child and knowing I was saved by Lebanon in on and then got baptized in Tulsa we would come back and forth for our green cards and we were all this stuff that we go through to become eventually in American and so but can't change just my faith I think part of it was sixteen every child who grows up in a Christian home there comes a point where you sort of understand it but there has to be an awakening I would call it like in a way getting in so I think that happened to me at camp that summer and it really set the path of my life I think now about calling and I go back to that point even though I wouldn't have called it my sure but I started living my life as if it was no longer mine now teen at Camp where Lord what do you want me to quote to college where do you what do you want to study what am I gonNa do okay started getting a hitch like this hint I was going to be a doctor and like for many reasons but but I thought well okay I guess I'll be emission a doctor so it was my thought my filter changed again and so yeah I went to college and I went to a Christian college in the South and then where'd you go how how how exciting do what does show to be Bob Jones University which most people who meet me would not believe that that was my alma mater did not have coach terms of football and among other that Greenville South Carolina the Bible Bill Okay but there is so funny thinking back a lot of people are surprised by the fact that I went there although I loved going there and and I still not embarrassed by it and although it sounded like a minute ago but go to Mexico from Bob Jones I it was not credited and people would be like they thought it was a joke right there's no college called that but we got a great education and I went be us my mom had conned me into applying Christian college when I was a senior in high school before I encountered the Lord in a fresh way so I was just I didn't know off the boat and and so my mom wouldn't get off my back and not just and she did it because she knew there's only college we knew that was Christian McMaster in Lebanon had gotten a PhD there or something okay and so applied there and I put it out of my mind and then I go to camp and the Lord used some counselors who had been from there in my life at the time and so I I saw the divine providence Asu to speak and so now I felt like God was like I went to go Christian college and and in and I thought well there is that Bob Jones mean I wore jeans every day to my high school every day of my senior year I didn't know you couldn't wear jeans oh you can't wear jeans at budget I don't know what the rules are now I haven't been very avid night like I don't know very much I think you have very conservatory conservative very like people joked about the blue sidewalks walks and so I remember coming home from Camp and it was a big deal we had sent the money into college and how my dad who has a new believer at that time agreed all of it it was just too much for our Lebanese family like why and then I come home and back for college and I find out you can't wear jeans and I had a heart attack and then that you're my first year of college you had to wear a hat every week why did you wear to church respecting Yeah Yeah Testament debates about delivery stricter with it yeah anyway and so I had a heart attack and thought you've gotta be kidding me and so I ended up going but I went knowing knowing it was Lord wanted me and so I had a great experience did we is a great education got into medical school I felt God's hand really shaping to stay I have friends from there that are wonderful but it was definite culture shock medical school Wisconsin I went back home to the medical -Sconsin and then came to Houston for my residency and then Florida from ship and then you went back to Chicago and practiced in fellowship has won the Lord called me to to ministry really I felt at before and I knew the Lord owned my life but I didn't know what that would look like and for season I thought it was medical mission and I even look back and I think how was it hard to get into that but it seemed like then the biggest obstacle my mind was that you had to raise support and I just couldn't fathom how my Dad Lebanese culture he had put me through medical school and then you're going to add any yeah I just couldn't I just wasn't there a fully Gordon and have to show me differently and then I did I try to be a southern Baptist which what's going to second Baptist new senators Tom Junior resident because they pay for their missionaries for a couple of years and I thought what did they didn't flow it just wasn't flowing and and so Right got engaged in my residency broke off engagement two weeks before the wedding sort of had this Oh yeah minor detail sorta had this like whoa everything was so easier doors are opening Bam obedient going to and then all of a sudden it's like I've done everything I was supposed to do and then it was like everything started blake fallen apart in some ways and I was like what is happening here and so an indepth season of residency the big problem that I sort of had to overcome was wasn't so much just that part of my story is that I was in love with the guy had met Bob Jones but I didn't know why couldn't used words at madame he became a doctor I became a doctor we went to different places for medical school kits stayed in touch daily talk like we were we were gonNA marry you're gonNA marry everybody thought we were except he and I were young and I was sixteen in college so now we go to residency we match in the the place but I go and date this other guy and I get engaged I do everything you're not supposed to do long and short of it is two weeks folding I see the light I break off the engagement thinking God's GonNa Restore Relationship Number One and God those not and I thought you've got to be kidding me and kept holding out those girls like I have a verse writing in my journal like God's going through ended up waiting season this is all good you know it's like a football game and you just know the last minute Hail Mary it's going to be you know didn't and and then he met somebody and then he was dating her and then they kept thinking God's going to end that relationship it's all going to work out and so I go to fellowship just heartbroken really I know where you're holding out for him he did yes it's complicated but yes we are yes okay which was humiliating you get all thirty five years ago and it's but it's like and you and you're like look back and you see God's hand but still there are moments where you kind of look back and go how did it because such a mess yeah I know on one level your brain understands God redeems everything for good you see that but it also is puzzling in some ways I think if a Christian is honest like I don't think you always understood everything it's like people who lose their children and then God uses administering like you know that it's working out for good your kids me be in heaven but it never makes not much sense to you that to me so in Holy Shit I'm dealing with that and so I'm externally faking it like I'm doing great and I love my new career love the inside yeah I was I really was and I wrote about that in my I sing the book first book I wrote which was on singleness and it was such a hard season and so out of it though the Lord started meeting me very personally and I was one of the advantages of Bob Jones Bruni instilling you the disciplines and I needed the discipline that season because for the of me I wouldn't have known how to talk to God if I didn't know to get up in the morning and sit in front of my Bible and read even to for weeks it means zero penetration into heart I was so mad at God I was less mad at the guy I felt like God could have changed right in my trust was never in the guy who was in the war and Oh God had spoken to me about something but God was slowly showing me a idols in my life I think that there are some issues idolatry had valued so much relationship that was really not meant to be in God was getting gaining back my heart and secondly I think God was setting up the stage to my calling and so I'm doing my fellowship and God is healing me and I started was offered through again a miraculous thing God's people the Church that story's pretty funny but you can read about in the book but basically like how odd reached through the church community to get me back really integrated into church started teaching a Bible study at Church and that's one isn't that Florida in Florida during my fellowship in the last two years is just three or fellowship in the last two years when I was really getting involved in a church teaching the Bible and it just clicked when I started teaching the this is what I created to do and so that's that journey and for the past that was two thousand and two ish and then I moved to Chicago which was not my design I would have stayed there in that church and on what I felt God had opened the Orne was flourishing and I had favor among the people in the church but the Lord again just uprooted me and put me in this town where my sister lived but but just felt also another stab like God okay now we've dealt with the guy and now I now I give you everything and now you're like what it's like what is this and so I wrote the second book called stripped which is really on that season of like how when God's called turns from Yes to why me sort of all in and so you think you said yes now it's like what more could go wrong but God is just getting started with your journey and so those twenty years is when I started doing what I'm doing now which is the Ministry of Teaching and speaking of course the best four years why I'm here is to refugee work that has landed me in missions now and all those years lately thought that's years you've been doctoring I've been well still doctor so but it's transitioned from academia academia. I did that for nine years when I went to children's Memorial Hospital had a great career there in fact started I still had the hunger I was doing a lot of mission trips I started their international program with a friend of mine we went to Tanzania that a lot of work they are so just really got very active and but my heart I was teaching start took.

From Newbie Coder to Google Software Engineer in Just 6 Months
"Hicklin. Thank you so much for coming on the show. Haywar on has gone. It's going great. Thank you for coming on again and I'm excited south south you today because you have really awesome background in tech you went to coding bootcamp. You've worked at top tech companies. You also have a side I project or side business so I'm just really excited to dive in but I could you just share a bit about yourself and your background with the audience in how you got into Tech Sean for first of all again thanks for having me but my background is pretty unique or unconventional rather. I would say I went to college and did not study computer science so I do not have a computer science degree and in fact I never learned how to Code until ask or college. I I did do a stem degree. I did a degree in mathematics that was only after having dabbled in a bunch of different fields in college and out of college. All the things that I was was interested in doing whether it'd be try to start my own business or may be getting something like product management all these things sort of required coding skills also so I decided it was time to take the week and I discovered these things called coating boot camps which mentioned just before which were sort of up and coming at the the time this was about three years ago in in twenty sixteen and I enrolled in a coding bootcamp kind of fell in love with software engineering and the rest of the sort of Mr. Wow so you went to coding bootcamp about three years ago you said was that like a tough decision for you to make like debris working fulltime time at the time and like left your job to go dive into a coding bootcamp. It was a tough decision but I was not working at the time I had just graduated from college and when I say just I really mean like a couple of weeks or maybe a month before my graduation had happened and I remember remember. You know thinking right now. I have to make a decision either. I enter the job market in some other field that wouldn't be software engineering nearing right or I really sort of take the leap or take this with sleep and which is a week from a financial cancelled point of view from a time commitment point of view and do according boot camp for a few extra months and pay some more money right after having done four eight years of college to choir these new skills with no no sort of like guarantee that it would work out right. Barry keep in mind that I had never ridden a line of code with my wife at that point but I did have the luxury of having a few friends who knew what they were talking about when it came to software engineering in coding kind of telling me hey yeah this putting bootcamp looks legitimate. You should try it out. It'll be worth it and it paid off. How long was it can't be went through. Was it like I feel like most are three months. Most three months so mine was yeah. I was three months as suffer the sort of immersive in person portion and there was nothing extra like four weeks at home. sort of you know maybe the half days or do it yourself kind of thing before the three months nice. So what did you do then after the coding bootcamp camp wrapped up. Did you get a job right away in software or as a software developer right so that's when when I guess I sort of career really began I spend a few months for paying for interviews and and doing all of that but then I landed my first job at Google as a software engineer and right right around the same time a little bit earlier than that actually before I started there. I started working on this side business. My now go expert help people in in that same coating interview process right so could you dive into both those things because first of all. I think it's like amazing that that your first job out of college out of the coding bootcamp was at Google because just talk a bit about that like how did you end up like. What did you do to prepare. How'd you get a job there silence at fourth right and it's funny because you know ironically. Google is sort of glamorized perhaps rightfully so especially. Lina software engineering field as an amazing place to work at a very difficult place a to get to land a job at but ironically they were one of the few companies who seem to be willing to give me a chance to interview as someone with no experience coming out of a coating boot camp and so on and so forth I founded surprisingly hard to land interviews or maybe not surprisingly but I found it very hard to win interviews at companies. It seemed like people would always dismiss me as like you don't have enough experience you know the canonical frustration of like. Oh in order to land your entry level job abune year couple years of experience but they were willing to give me that chance so I contacted recruiter directly I think by Lincoln he got back to me got the interview process process started and then I spent a good amount of time and energy deep preparing for for the coding interviews with sort of notorious is for being pretty algorithm intensive and I guess I just did very well on them and then you know God the job and took it
"lina" Discussed on Probably Science
"Hello and welcome to probably science. My name is Andy. Would I'm cashing your hair but back in the living room hip whereabout I duNno. I said that we haven't been on the road much recently. We haven't haven't been in the living room fleet week. Site Yeah it was. I was melting this living room until about half an hour ago. I was in a car heading towards this living room. We're back but we are now back back in the same place where we have podcast together in numerous other occasions. It's like everybody by backstreet boys when they're like backstreets back. I think that's the first song I've heard by guys. What are you back. Wasn't that their breakout hit or was there so before backstreets back. I thought they were singing about their back okay.

The older best term for the college is the person who's yeah so anyway that soon I've been getting them a lot and they've been rebel voices and your phone now says that it thinks it is no but it's an eight one eight number that I do recognize. The only sunny is that you have an eight one eight no but that's La region. They started cloning. You started getting phone calls. That's the real gave away. When I get a phone call that is only about four digits offer my phone of every day I get the first six numbers of my phone own as an as a phone call and it's just a robocaller hello. UPN select fuck you. We should introduce I guess because this is an old friend of mine visiting Ting ally who both acoustic and scientists. We got to make this happen good friend. Ria Lena no real thoughts it out together. We did the many we did like open mics together. We competitions together. We did the together yeah. We did a package compilation show at the Edinburgh Festival in two thousand and three thirteen. Let's call that two thousand thirteen hundred sake of you know yes the could actually get paid for doing work the big value comedy show at just the tonic at the what was it called changed names now the the venue isn't even what it used to be called no like blue velvet blue.

We don't like your friends will make you want and they made an they didn't say that they didn't hate onto year worlds or they might have said that you were you too young to remember. It's possible you might have just internalized that and that's just coming out now so reason I only have one friend from nursery because my parents hated on all the others and you're over here. You hardly slept last night because post show made a baby. She made a baby she she was. She didn't pop it out. It came up with sunroof but but she show I've come over and having already made my own babies I came. I said I'll come and meet your baby and help you because I know what I'm doing right babysitting note put I made three separately not together one time so now you really know all the rules of babies light which forget this. This is a newborn. There's not a lot to newborns like wipe them feed them. Put them down pickled. Burgum some burping Rackham so much frigging rocking folks yeah but that's when you run that was awesome no yeah so. I came over to share my expertise and GIG and you guys. Are you technically a short-term AU pair right now see my face. I don't think I even get to the level of AU pair. it just means you. Try to get around some laws or something with the well. Oil Pairs are a proper thing in Europe. That's a level of childcare that you can. They have very defined definition that different to nanny thought an technically a live in any iphone. I found live in nannies eleven nanny okay and doesn't get paid okay and my experience with like knowing people who had them growing up in Michigan. It was always someone someone from Europe so I thought it was like they want a free trip to America and you want free childcare and yeah I think that's basically the deal you get you get a combination of not sending anybody yet they get free accommodation and maybe a little bit of maybe a little bit of a stipend spending money and Fed on food and you get you get childcare and light housework but they get days off and spousal jealousy routes. I've had some lovely young male. Oh peirce from Sweden really know in my dreams which Sir it's possible yeah in my I live in London. We don't have room for all pairs children. AH LUDWIG DREAMS GO TO DIE yeah. You'RE GONNA have a daydream briefly going to be doing some of the stuff at the same time you daydream on your commute slows. You're getting guessing somewhere at the same time as your dreams but actual dreamy time has downtime come up move move move in someone else's armpit during that in London not because of space just because it's fun that is the real. We don't have the space. We have this. Apparently there's ten million people in. La Sound about right immune tire Eleusis Susumu Rule La county but we have ten million people in London and we're not a sprawl. It's not sprawl evening. We've put well not the way. La Sprawls Yeah things Dr I mean it takes two hours and you get from you know top to middle two hours in your your well across London. You might even be into Midland's. It's the I wonder if we start if you overlaid London like I don't know what that ten million counts you know because if you go east you can go one hundred miles before you're out of any kind of city. I don't know if if that is all included in the lights of Riverside and all that kind of area stuff I don't I I am no show that is the sprawl is though so you have more spacier. This living room that we're in is is probably the size of half my flat. I'm sure costs twice right isn't letting the most expensive city in the world now or not. Most buddy helps there in about six weeks. We're about to crash and burn up six weeks. Oh well. Maybe you're upset. Forgot forgot. I don't know what sorry it'll be going out pretty much very shortly. After you record it L. Right okay so timestamps correct so rea- Hi Hi. Let's get into this is a rep normally have a comedian on our scientists on and every so often that has been a comedian. I think we probably have about four four or five episodes. Where being comex who that might be generous. I'm not sure yeah. There's a handful of comedic and you're you're one one of them. So let's talk around. Then enough can have out a few physicists. There's a few biologists so let's talk through okay. I don't know whether it's a start on with your undergrad and stuff will work. Ford all start with your what is your PhD and do that and then the okay my phd he is in something called viral bioinformatics which bioinformatics is is using technology usually computer technology to analyze biological data data whether it's sequence data or structural data or I mean it's widely expensive now as to what you can you know. I personally use computer programming to analyze sequence data so you know. DNA has sequences and I would look at entire genomes of virus viruses specifically herpes yes viruses and then I would compare them to their hosts and look for similarities to see you know to to draw evolutionary eve luminary conclusions about about how related they were who gave who what because you know herpes just isn't it isn't just for Christmas as for life and because of the way that herpes enters and stays as in the system we wanted to use it for gene therapies and maybe think of it as a means of delivering missing genes in conditions that don't have them because herpes kind of moves moves in and goes. I'm here and I'm staying so we're like well. As long as you're going right to aunt Patti's cell would you mind is good stuff along with you. Would you bring this protein with you. Please lease 'cause she's missing it. I think we've talked about that as a news story in the last year or two gay I think every and that has the have been stories that have because you would know more about this than I do but I know that they have been some stories that we've covered on the show where at least promising early stages or even late stages of of what you described actually being indulgent horsing yeah gene therapy. I mean it's come a long. I did the PhD awhile ago so things have moved along greatly and actually my pc I wasn't. I wasn't specifically weekly looking at gene therapy. I was just trying to understand the relationship between herpes and hosts a little bit better because one of the fascinating things about the the relationship is it goes so far back in time that we it's a chicken and egg who came up with which protein I it herpes steel that protein from us or herpes give us is that protein that that has similar functions and it's on you know who gave who what is the way that we can figure out how to get herpes to give if it is a giver could be taken. I don't know if it's a bottom. I don't know if it's like that's what I was looking at herpes a you a bottom or top versatile. It's you know D- D- taken at the same time you know. Can we spit roast you. Hey Spurs the technical team. Let's bring it down to the layperson level some some of our listeners now. I don't understand what a tower is okay. Dr but no let's attended did their listeners who don't know how virus actually creates a protein and how that process his name's. Andy would but like. Let's pretend there's someone randy could sure yeah ready could is wondering how virus tower the operates could if you could back up for idiots view of how aching up ooh okay so. What's your actual question. What do you want your. You're comparing the virus and the host in terms of okay so you want to know what the PhD Hd what studying or do you want to know the process of just basic nor everyone say I guess the purchase of iron infection. Let's start with okay. I personally I got interested in viruses. When I was in high school long before we all did in different ways how many how many viruses can I get off. How many any girls who can give this to so I I was interested in viruses in high school. We did not know when I was in high school that I was autistic. I think there were signs one. The signs was when they said what's your favorite animal. I would go a virus. I think that was a huge clue. I was fascinated by the fact that in theory some viruses you could put them in a bowl of water in the live forever because they don't they're. There's they sort of have a parasitic relationship with with whatever they in fact in that but they don't live on their own of virus cannot survive on its own. It uses your cellular components to replicate and to live on it. You said it could it sits. It sits. It's in stasis it can it can in theory sit in stay seasonable the water for a thousand years and then the moment that it comes into contact with whatever it's host is so the common cold infecting human for example. HIV infects humans SL infects monkeys so you can have different species of different viruses that then affect different species she's of different animals and I was fascinated by that the whole idea that we had it was almost the pinnacle of evolution evolution itself is not directional all I should make that clear before someone writes in and complains that goes excuse me that's one of the.
