What I find most rewarding about my role is the opportunity and the chance to be unique and to be creative. There's a whole outlet where I get to design, I get to create and implement new things that I think would be user-friendly, so getting to kinda get into the mindset of how can I make things better, how can I get more creative is just really a fun experience to have within this role.
