Hi ladies and gentlemen, for the past 1 or 2 weeks it was pretty hectic because my colleague is on leave and I’m running events, and I didn’t manage to get to update my blog.
On 21st October 2019, aOSKL had a dinner event for all speakers (local and international) and professionals from Microsoft, to get to know each other better. I met Annie Matthew, and Cassandra they are the committees for Women Who Code from Microsoft, so they invited me to join one of their up coming event on 24th October 2019.
So yea, I join to check it out, spoke to few attendees and the speakers, to get to know them and about this community. It seems that mostly the attendees were females and looking for a change of field, due to work hours or bored of their current field. However, they do not know how and they have too many worrying thoughts of changing fields. I think what they need is a confidence speaker to tell them “Just go ahead“. As a women myself, yes I tend to think twice or multiple times before stepping or making a move into a new field. Anyway, I am lucky that my job does not require me on stepping into a field full of bombs.
The only requirements you need is to stay humble, honest and passion about the work.
You can’t buy experiences.
Thanks for reading this blog post and I am hoping that more youngsters and females to join the tech field and become an influencer.
