Conquering Math with Michaela Hearst
"My whole life, Math has made me anxious. It was not only my hardest subject, but at times, it felt like my worst enemy.

"Robin "The Math Lady" Schwartz, who I know from my neighborhood and spent 10 days in Israel with, posts all sorts of Math problems on her Instagram page. Robin is a (really awesome!) former engineer and portfolio manager turned tutor, teacher, speaker, and the founder of "Build Math Confidence." This past summer, I started doing some of her Math problems out of curiosity and boredom. I was impressed at myself when I got one of her percentage problems right.
