Abhi, great article! I can relate to your story. I was so quiet throughout school, really intent on learning but always too shy to ask questions. But as an adult, I now realize that my questions are valuable to more than just myself, too — often if Iraise your hand, someone else was wondering the same thing, and I’m helping them out, as well as learning something new myself. I do wish I could go back and smack my little freckly self! But all I can do is help my shy kids try raising their hands, and little by little they’ll see it’s better to ask than to keep that question still in their heads. Enjoyable read — keep it up! Looking forward to getting to know more about Fracture.
