I AM Empowered…Almost

I have to give week two its props and say that I’m glad it went easy on me. Week two was less work intensive but I know that’ll change in the following weeks with all the exciting projects we have coming up. This morning a fellow empowerment (see what I did there?) shared her story and honestly, it’s something that is going to stick with me. Her strength and ability to keep pushing forward no matter what obstacles are placed in her way has inspired me. You never truly know what someone is going through until they open up. Which is why I’m glad that I had the opportunity to open up a new segment to the group today. Be Empowered Bonding was a hit!

I’m so glad that we get the chance to just hang out and talk without it being lunch time or the little moments we have before speakers/presenters. The ability to please everyone and grow closer together outside of coding is something that I believe is vital to the success of this program. I’m excited for the opportunities that have been presented to us thus far and I can’t wait to see the outcomes. I’m so thankful for these bonds that I’m forming and despite the challenges we face along the way it is all going to work out!
