Slow burn crush
I am harboring
a crush crushes on women in tech and STEM fields. There is something viscerally stirring, to an unspeakable degree, about the comportment of women wontonly flaunting their brilliant brains for all to see.
As International Women's Day approaches, I find myself with an abundance of events competing for my time, where I canl get my fill of amazement and wonder.
At this very moment, I must choose between going to an admissions prep meetup for the Grace Hopper Academy at Full Stack Academy and Google's Women Techmakers event
By now, I think I know what I'll be doing. But in many ways, I am still second guessing my decision.
To help me break the tie, I've been trying to investigate the value of each event from the vague information of each that I scrounged online.
During my research I found a YouTube series of Women Techmakers talking about Product Management(PM). In many ways, I believe that PM is where my true heart lies: Strategy. Dreaming big. Brokering relationships. Bridging communication gaps.
Seeing these women talk about their process, their work, their problem solving paradigms....so good! I fall in love with each video. I have such a zombie-like fetish for confident, optimistic, determined BRAINS!, I'm almost embarrassed writing this....almost.
It is all so nerdly stirring! Don't you agree?:
