Laila’s superpower is translation. From technical jargon and industry-speak to medical advice, Laila excels at making what is difficult or nearly impossible to comprehend, comprehensible, so that it has meaning for others.
“In my work, I translate technical issues, and trends, and complex matters into stories, messages, and illustrations that my peers can act upon with confidence,” says Laila. “Yes… that’s my super power. I hear it, I understand it, and I make it comprehensible for others.”
