The Right Amount of Chill

Yoko Sakao Ohama

Yoko Sakao Ohama is a Designer who lives in Brooklyn, NY and works at Squarespace. Aside from being an awesome designer, Yoko is also a dancer. In her spare time, she writes Why Aren't We Dancing - a curated newsletter about interesting dance videos she finds online.

We sit down and talk about the path from school to working in the "real world" - the different perceptions and experiences of college, quitting a job at a start-up and when it's okay to burn bridges. We talk about our community of designers and developers, and handing off work to the right people within it. All in all, we evaluate the importance of self-confidence as we navigate through the tech-industry and life.
