    What does your typical day look like? What are you currently working on? 

    I start my day looking into all the open Pull Requests that my peers have, if its Monday/Wednesday/Friday I join the Coffee Morning call to chat and share some laughs early in the morning, after that that I go back to work on my Jiras and if I have any doubts/questions or something I want to change on it I can open a call and chat with anyone inside or outside my team and everyone is open minded and tries their best to understand and help me.
