Mini Takeaways

#AppAdvice: What is a useful app or platform that has helped you grow in your career?

#LearnThatTerm: What does the term imposter syndrome mean to you?

I think it’s the little things – the moments where you could have gotten an opportunity but you didn’t say anything because you didn’t believe in yourself. But I’ve been working on it – knowing it’s okay to be wrong – I think it helps to realize that the way to learn is making mistakes and getting it wrong so you can then get it right.

#Friendlies: What is an organization or affinity group that you would recommend joining?

  • Girls Teaching Girls to Code is a program where college women teach and inspire Bay Area high school girls to explore Computer Science and Engineering. Students learn coding basics, build exciting projects, and develop strong relationships with mentors in the field.
  • IGNITE’s mission is to create opportunities to spark girls’ excitement about technology careers and inspire them to new possibilities. IGNITE lights them up.

#GrowYourNetwork: Where do you live online or how can people reach out to you?
