Mirza joins the show to talk about their origin story, how they started by translating poems, which led into working as a full-time translator. Eventually, they stumbled into product management while at university for their master's degree. Now they manage people who work on Product Strategy. We discuss how they view product management and product strategy, using Miro versus FigJam, and about their experience being gay in the tech industry and more recently coming out as non-binary.
