If we never show and tell, we’ll continue to live in the shadows.
Erin K. Geyer

It’s not for me to say what’s right for you, or what helps others in situations like yours. But I think we all find it easier to see ourselves succeeding at something more easily when we can see others who are more like us — who we can relate to as role models.

Anyway, point is just that I think it takes bravery to put yourself out there (for a lot of reasons), but I think doing so is a great service to young women looking for role models who they can relate to succeeding and leading as programmers. Thanks for sharing this, and for putting yourself out there for others to see.
