    One of the biggest challenges I’ve ever faced was presenting at my first conference. As a PhD student I had to give a presentation to a room of a few hundred scientists. It was really scary because I felt so under qualified! It turned out to be not as bad as I expected, and I’ve never been as nervous to speak again.
