E a viagem a trabalho acabou, pegando o avião pra voltar pra casa 🏠 levando experiências indescritíveis e parte da “loucura” em todos os sentidos. Daqui duas semanas tem mais 😉

It’s almost 2020, so I can’t believe this needs to be said...
Women don’t owe anyone free labor— including emotional. Women don’t owe anyone their “nice”— engaging in convo, smiling, making eye contact.
⚡️
Time is your most precious resource. Your time is more valuable than any material item on this planet. You become what you spend your time doing and absorb the energy of the people around you, or they suck you dry of yours. When you give your time to people you don’t want to, you’re taking away time for yourself.
⚡️
Accepting DM requests and answering people’s questions is never a 5 minute convo. A mentoring relationship happens over the course of weeks or months and requires hours of my time and attention. Every now and then someone I had previously mentored checks back in and shares their success story with me... It warms my heart every time. But I can’t provide that anymore. And I won’t apologize for saying no.
⚡️
My DMs have become almost entirely a place where people from the most represented group(s) in tech continuously, obsessively, and hostilely demand that I provide professional consulting to them for free; it has become a place where a bunch of men ask me if I *really* am what I say I am on my resume. This is one type of toxic micro-aggression that women endure in tech spaces. No, I don’t know any man in my industry who is constantly doubted by strangers on the Internet asking if he *really* has the job or skills listed on his resume.
⚡️
If you value someone’s professional consulting, don’t pop up in their DMs with your hand out asking for free labor. Stop taking advantage of women. Show respect by asking what they charge for their hourly rate.
⚡️
You, as an individual, are not a charity. I can’t give my time for free to individuals. I’m one person and that doesn’t scale. No, I won’t feel bad for setting boundaries with strangers.
⚡️
This post is for any woman or underrepresented person who has felt an unspoken obligation to be overly nice or “throw in an extra hour for free.” You don’t owe that to anyone.
⚡️
Stop shaming women for being assertive.

Favourite T-shirt quote: Brain is forever 🧠. You can’t put a value on constantly learning and growing. Looks will come and go but being able to have built something, create something, learn something new, that is really cool to me 🤓.

Sneak peak of an image from my upcoming eBook that is going to be released next week (stay tuned for exact date)! The eBook is like your best friend/handbook/reference point throughout your coding journey. When I was learning how to code I felt like I had a ton of coding resources out there but no resource to provide guidance, suggestions and advice along the way. That is what I am providing to you with this eBook 💻💡.

Booked my flights home for the holidays 😄🎄 I used to take for granted coming from a small place in Swift Current, Saskatchewan 🌾 but as I get older I love going back home: the fresh air, the space, and peace it brings (and of course seeing all my fam💕) I always look forward to it. Where is your home town?! ⬇️.

Milagre de hoje: pegar o elevador sozinha. Hahaha quem trabalha em sp sabe da correria e da loucura nas empresas com milhares de funcionários, muitas pessoas entrando e saindo o tempo todo. E aqui não é diferente e, mais diferente ainda, é a liberdade e flexibilidade do trabalho, das squads. .

People often ask me how quickly they can learn coding and become a web developer. Usually my answer is 1-2 years, which many people are disappointed to hear. I can totally understand wanting to achieve something right now, but the truth is that it's never easy or quick to get from point A to point B. The important thing is to make progress consistently, and at a rate where you won't burn out. It's better to finish 6 months or a year later than quitting and never getting to the finish line at all.
.
For those of you who are already web developers, how long did it take to ultimately land a job? And for those of you who are learning, how is the process going for you?

“If people are telling you that they don't believe what you're doing, that means you're doing something out of their comfort zone. And generally, people don't want to be taken out of their comfort zone because it's outside of the status quo.” - @whitney.

💎 Meet Justina Sanchez, Senior Product Safety Engineer at TUV SUD America Inc.⠀
⠀
1️⃣ What or who inspired you towards your STEM career?⠀
⠀
Working in an environment with engineers motivated me to pursue engineering.⠀
⠀
2️⃣ Explain what you do such that a 10-year old can understand.⠀
⠀
I test products (consumer products, laboratory equipment, A/V, information technology and medical devices) before you can buy them at the store or use them to make sure that they are safe.⠀
⠀
3️⃣ How does your career make a difference in the world and help people?⠀
⠀
I help keep the world a safer place. ⠀
⠀
4️⃣ What one or two career achievements are you most proud of? ⠀
⠀
Championing the Women’s Network in North America and receiving my auditor authorization.⠀
⠀
5️⃣ How did exposure to STEM in your youth impact you?⠀
⠀
I wasn’t exposed to STEM much as a child; this is why I have a drive to expose the younger generation to it. ⠀
⠀
6️⃣ What advice would you give to a girl or young woman thinking about pursuing your STEM career? ⠀
⠀
Get involved. Ask an engineer if you can shadow them at work. Try to get hands on in a lab. That’s a great experience. ⠀
⠀

So I am working with mostly men in different projects since 2 years now, and I wanted to share what I have learned from them. :) It feels like men are more self-confident than the average women I have met and they worry less. All in all its a more direct way of working, if I do something bad, I get to know about it instantly. ^^
.
Women tend to be a bit more indirect with criticism sometimes. After I got used to direct criticism I have to say I prefer it. The whole way of dealing with each other seems to be very open and without hiding anything. But sometimes it would also be good to not say everything you think. ;)
.
I guess gender mixed teams are really well as they balance each others strength and weaknesses. Im very grateful for my experiences as the self-confidence of my team members seems to mark off on me. What do you think about only women/men and mixed teams? What do you like best and why?
