I had a great time volunteering with @paigeandpaxton yesterday at @blue1647chicago. The kids were so excited and had fun learning about Civil Engineering!
If you don’t know about Paige and Paxton, the founder, Kelley O. Cambry was on episode 3 of @blacktechunplugged. Learn about Paige & Paxton and buy their products ASAP. I highly suggest you use their STEM learning products with any children, nieces, nephews, whatever kids you have in your life.
"I can be your lighthouse."
I'm spending the weekend at Acadia National Park, Maine. I long dreamed of coming here and unfortunately it's very rainy but we're ready to explore! I found out my love for lighthouses in this stay in the US and whenever I find one I always want to go!
During this PhD journey, sometimes it has been hard to see the light in the dark. I often feel I still have a long way to accomplish something. But, even though this year has been challenging, I find the light in several lighthouses: supervisors, mentors, people I meet while networking, and of course loved ones. Even you guys here on social media are a lighthouse! Learning from everyone's experiences is great and pointed me towards the career I want after my PhD and I love it!
Who are your lighthouses? Find yours!
This week someone challenged me to write a chat app in Angular2+ in 3 hours and have it run locally where every new window was a separate client. Finished it in little over 2 hours :p. It honestly made me very happy. Brought back the same rush I used to have when I first started coding. Yea it might be simple but it honestly had a huge effect.
Things are looking up 😊. My downs are going to pay off. I can already feel it.

Technology is engraved in our everyday activities, even dating. This marriage is the result of great data, good eye, and having an open heart. Technology does part of the work but it is our willingness to be receptive to love and the non-traditional way of dating that makes match making happen. We live a non-traditional life it is only fair to say that I would date in a very non-traditional way (Love tradition, but sometimes I also break the mold).

“Black Tech Women means -family- finding beautiful women with similar experiences and feeling comfortable different spaces” - Lauren Mayfield | Marketing Manager at @trycaviar & Black Tech Women Brunch attendee #blacktechwomen#blackwomenintech#afrotech
You best believe it! The perfect example is Jesus. Born in a manger but now King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!! Where you are coming from or where you may presently be does not change the power of God's Word to take you to where He has purposed for you. Have faith and be obedient to His word because God indeed meets you at the point of obedience. Happy Sunday everyone and do enjoy the rest of the day. ❤❤ Photo credit: etsy.com
AUTOBAHN // Driving through German countryside on our way back to Denmark. Currently reading about the development of robots through time and what the future might look like 🤖 Very fascinating and interesting read! #sundayreading#techgirl
💀 I’m dead tired but that’s ok.
🤣 I decided on a triple espresso and to wait to sleep until la noche.
🤯 I knew an engineering degree and I would get on well together, but I had no idea how far #STEM skills can truly take a gal.
📌If you’re on the fence about what to study, and don’t already have a STEM degree... get one!
🤩 The jobs aren’t going anywhere for people who *can* build and program machines
🎵 On that note, check out my latest blog post to learn the best way to get into the data professionals if you already have a stem degree - See Link In Bio for that!

Netflix and Gobble this holiday season. We came up with the ultimate list of holiday must watch movies. 🦃🍿🍷🦃🍿🍷
1. Dead Poets Society starring the beloved Robin Williams. This story of an English teacher that transforms an all boys classroom into a society of men in love with the written word.
2. Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner- Halloween is over but when ghosts tell you to build it (baseball park) you build it they will sure come.
3.Anastasia- Get in the winter mood with this story that will capture you right from the start. Overthrown government, Kings and Queens, musical eggs, we are sure you will fall in love.
4.Moana- This animated cartoon won't let you forget that just a few months ago we laid by the pools and beaches. Sing your heart out and meet the heroine of the story Moana.
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become reality. Second day of the @goodienation hackathon! Becoming a better software developer every day 🖐!! Have a great day!!
Through the good, bad, happy and sad... I have learned to APPRECIATE everything about my life.
I celebrate myself by giving myself grace to grow and space to make mistakes as I keep going.
I pat myself on the back and encourage myself.
