Win some, lose some

Our failures don't need to define us - cliche, we know! Listen as Simon and Deena share some of their failures while in academia and as far back as high school. Also, Simon's good friend Dom shares what she views as failures during her PhD and, "against all odds", becoming a faculty member in a prestigious liberal arts university in New York. Deena shares the perspective from an interview she came across that allowing oneself to be vulnerable and share failures comes from a place of privilege.


What are your thoughts on publicly sharing failures? What are some of your failures and how did you handle the situation and grow (or not grow) from it? Tweet us @DYES_podcast.
