Hey everyone,
I tried something new this month. I went on two podcasts to talk about Diversify Tech! I usually stick to Twitter or blogging for promotion but I need to use every opportunity available to keep it growing.
I was definitely nervous. I get conscious about my English and my accent sometimes. I fumbled and I forgot what I wanted to say on the first podcast 😁. I learned from my mistakes and did better on the second one. It wasn’t as terrifying as I thought it would be. I actually enjoyed them. You never know till you try!
They’ll be released in the next few weeks and I’m excited to share them with you.
How is your week going?

P.S. I’ll be at DCFemTech awards on Monday. Come say hi if you see me!

In my experience teaching, everyone can learn how to code.

Everyone just takes a different timeline and different materials to learn effectively.
