"It can be hard for people to grasp what I do for my career and what the industry is that I'm involved in, so this has been a cool tool to present to friends and family for them to get a better understanding. It is also just a great educational tool in general for anyone to learn more about that aspect of the industry, I find a lot of the general population have little to no knowledge, but many want to learn!" - Anonymous survey respondent
