‘Be the change you want to see.’
You probably have heard this quote a gazillion times and for good reason, because it holds true.
No one ever did achieve anything great by resting on their laurels. You have to get up. You have to tell yourself, ‘I can do this’ and chances are you probably will and even if you don’t, you will feel better knowing that you tried.
I recall my first day of college, it was a new place, a new environment and I had no freaking idea where my first class was. I nervously looked around and I saw a hundred faces with an expression not too different from mine. An expression of – is this it? what the hell happens after this?
Fast forward to graduation day, with a scroll in our hands we once again asked, ‘What the hell happens after this?’
Some of us chose to take the first jobs that came our way, some of us got lucky and found what we were destined for and others took their time to figure out where they wanted to be and to pursue their passions.
…and yet there are the rest who are still trying to choose the road that they should take.
I am one of them.
…but that is the road I am on and I am staying put. I refuse to quit and I refuse to give up.
Being at FITC will be an opportunity of a lifetime for me to meet likeminded women who refuse to quit and soldier on in the world of technology.
I have this burning desire inside of me to make something happen. I often ask myself, ‘why am I here? there is something bigger than this right?’ and with technology the answer is always yes! I want to be able to make something happen. Scratch that, I WILL make it happen!
Never stop learning. Never stop dreaming.
