I tried out a Computer Science class in High School. I got hooked. Coding became my creative outlet. I love to create new things and be able to bring my ideas to life.
I am also building mobile app templates for Ionic developers. I recently built an app template for conferences and I am working on one for e-commerce.
Slack Bots! I just learned how to build one. I'll be building one so that employers can share jobs with women in tech slack communities.
Don't strive for perfection. Go after what you want now. It's ok to make mistakes. Sometimes trial and error is how you learn. If you don't try, you'll never know what you are capable of.
I've wanted to start my own business but I kept waiting for the right time, the right experience, and so on. I have the huge advantage of having the ability to create most software products. I am learning the business side as I go. Now that I've started down this path, I wish I started sooner.
Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. Take advantage of the amazing women in tech communities that are there to help you!
Most people want to make things perfect. Sometimes we evaluate the complexity of an upcoming goal or a problem. So, the fear to not complete it perfectly or "wrong" (Yeah, who are judges? 🤔) stops us even from trying.
