" For me, it's always a rewarding feeling to get better and improve skills through work. For me, it's always a rewarding feeling to love the work I do. But for me, I think the greatest reward of work is to ensure that the projects you do help the people around you in a measurable way: inspiring them, empowering them, or making their lives better. "
