Overachiever's Motivation Mix

The Smartsheet Overachievers are here to give you the songs that will keep you going and keep you achieving! Here’s what’s on the playlist right now.

Harry Styles, “Kiwi”

“I somewhat begrudgingly went to a Harry Styles concert with my girlfriend last fall only to be blown away by his performance. For weeks after, I was blasting Kiwi in the car. Anytime I need a pick me up, rock anthem song, I play Kiwi!”

- @Justin Peters, Operations Associate at Marsh McLennan


More about me

Hey there! I’m Marcela, Community Specialist. You have probably seen me commenting on some of your posts, answering a few questions and reacting to your inputs. However, most of my work is behind the stage moderating posts.

  1. I have been with Smartsheet for 7 great months now, and I’m loving it! Definitely looking forward to many years more! 
  2. I’m from Costa Rica, and since I love outdoor activities, I really enjoy spending my free time exploring every corner of this beautiful country - especially hiking volcanoes and watching sunsets at the beach. 
  3. Cooking for my loved ones is one of my passions.
  4. I’m the owner of two beautiful rescued doggies, they are very spoiled and loving girls. I can’t imagine my life without pets!
