It was probably about this time 3 years ago that I bought this laptop, after I decided I needed a break from my “8-5” (hint hint: it wasn’t 8-5)
I know buying a new laptop won’t solve all my problems, but for me, it was a sign of commitment, and a symbol that I didn’t need an institution to support me. (Although I was funding @apple 😂）
I’m not saying that working with an institution is a problem, but for me, I was living and breathing for those institutions. I was letting my ...personal life slip away - and my passion for technology be used for things that were good for the world, but not good for pursuing my dreams.
I needed a new journey, and desperately wanted an outlet to encourage others (especially women 🧕🏽👩🏼🎓👨🏼🎤👩🏾🎤👩🏿⚕️🕵🏽♀️👮🏼♀️👩🏽💼👩🏼🔧👩🏿🏫👩🏼🏭👩🏾⚖️👸🏽🧝🏿♂️🧝🏼♀️🧟♀️💁🏽♀️）to rethink their relationship with and capabilities of using technology.
More on this journey coming to the blog soon, but to sum it up, it doesn’t matter what my story is, or how I got here, because the most important thing, is that I’m here now. Your story is unique to you, and no one can feel it, dream it, or live it like you do!
So, what’s your dream? What’s holding you back, and what are you going to do about it?
