A newsletter by and for underrepresented coders

Hey everyone,
How are you? I hope that you are well. I ended up taking an unexpected break. I’ve had a hard time managing being a mom and a founder. I had to cut back on a lot of things and re-strategize. Some days are still hard but I have a more manageable routine now.
I’m switching to a monthly schedule
I love putting this newsletter. Highlighting underrepresented folks in tech gives me a lot of joy. However, I need to cut back on the time I spend on it till things get back to somewhat normal. I’m going to switch to a monthly schedule for now.

Don't wait until promotion time. Remind yourself regularly of your accomplishments. Every morning when my alarm goes off on my phone, I see a notification with my listed accomplishments pop up. This helps me deal with #ImposterSyndrome, which is ABSOLUTELY real.
