Happy International Women’s Day! Excited to end the day with an Introduction to Solidity talk at ETH U of T from 8-9pm!
The significance of this day has brought me to reflect on the progression of the past year. Days before starting my first coop, I remember admitting to Alic how I thought my skills were inadequate to be a blockchain developer. He told me to trust myself, and that I’m smarter than I think I am. Never would have thought that would lead to state channels or teaching at George Brown.
I’m so incredibly lucky to have received a tremendous amount of mentorship throughout the year. I could go on about people who helped me develop personally and professionally Instead, I just want to say thank you.
Today’s celebration of women is as much a celebration to all the hard work people continuously do to make sure females feel welcome and safe enough to be themselves. That includes knowing our limits, and knowing when it’s okay to push us to think outside the box.
