Gratitude and Growth
My last day at Microsoft was September 22.
I dreamt of working at Microsoft as a child, and looking back on the last thirteen years I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. My dream of impacting 100s of millions through products, learning invaluable skills, and having epic experiences came true.
What I’m truly grateful for is the people, those who gave me the opportunity and the countless more who made it amazing. We worked together, laughed together, and debated one another, and they are the most important part of my time at Microsoft. I believe your coworkers are part of your compensation package, and they made sure I was richly paid.
It’s time for a new adventure that will push me to grow in new ways. I firmly believe in the importance of a growth mindset and while I’m not naïve enough to believe I’ve learned everything I can at Microsoft, it’s time to throw myself into an entirely different situation to achieve the growth I’m looking for.
Today is day one at Dropbox! I’m Product Manager for Retrieval, based in the Seattle office. I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to grow and contribute, and can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead.
