Happy New Year friends, and welcome to the last 2019 quarterly Twitter highlights!

Christmas celebrations with the Tech Nation PM team

For me, I have loved 2019. I started the year optimistic and ended the year stronger than ever ✨ ✨ ✨

Time to wrap up 2019 Q4, and review it all! Again, the purpose of this series is really for me to soak in the past few months. It’s for my own well-being and self-reflection.

I’m excited, let’s go!

For January to September self-reflection, please refer to Q1, Q2, and Q3 blogs.

October

It’s Black History Month, and I’m feeling ready to conquer the month. We kick off the month with me posting my 1st Vlog video. Super proud of the animation intro and overall video editing.

I was featured by We Are Tech Women, I shared my overall tech journey, my pivot into investing and scaling startups story.

I spoke on a panel for BHM. I was able to give my perspective as a black woman in the tech/startup ecosystem, and my future predictions and what do we do to make the world a better place.

I was featured in TechWorld, alongside many other amazing black women in UK tech.

Meanwhile, at work we wrap-up Cyber 1.0 final dinner. Super lucky to start my role a little bit earlier before entering Cyber 2.0 discovery.

November

I was featured in ASOS (Autumn Magazine) as one of their Change Makers.

Me and Emmanuel represented CGV in our 1st international campaign.

I went to Slush! My second international conference as an investor.

I attended the Huxley Summit as part of the New Voice cohort.

December

I love December, the only month which I fully shut down and it’s My Birthday Month 🎂

I uploaded my 4th vlog style video on Youtube.

Meanwhile, at CGV, we had our Christmas dinner to end a successful year.

Closing 2019

Happy New Year, officially closing 2019

The year started with me being featured on BBC 1Xtra talking about how to secure investment as a minority in the UK.
In March, I decided to leave my software engineering role and have a break; mainly having a massive career retrospective.
I had the opportunity to attend 2 international tech/startup conferences as an investor; Latitude59 & Slush with Backed VC.
I taught over 100 women how to code, reaching my teaching milestone.
I went to 10 Downing Street and I was featured in ComputerWeekly Most Influential Women in UK Tech 2019 Longlist.
I joined Tech Nation and officially pivoted my career into helping scaling startups and launched my Tech/Startup Vlog Channel on Youtube!

My mantra for 2020 will be

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”

(David Viscott)

I’m a big believer in setting goals, and similar to last year I like to keep this private. Below are some good goal templates to review the year before and set goals for the next year:
