They say the best investment you can make is in yourself! I’m currently in college, had no idea what I wanted to do with my life for the longest time and was really depressed.

I’m really happy and wanted to share all the amazing free resources that have helped me dive into this amazing industry. We live in an amazing time where all of the worlds knowledge from renowned institutions is so easily accessible, let’s make the best of it!
