i gave a speech!

I gave my speech to the whole of Yahoo as part of the weekly all-hands, and it went REALLY well, imo. Not sure how many people were motivated by it, but strangers are still stopping me to tell me how much they enjoyed it.

Then, today, I noticed someone giving a tour to a bunch of kids through our office and I stepped out of the meeting I was about to start with the management team to talk to them briefly and tell them who were are (as former BrightRoll employees). I told them that if they ever wanted to talk to a woman in software engineering that I was always happy to do so, and later that afternoon someone from their program at Stanford emailed me to talk to them — they are part of a program that is a free college prep program for underrepresented students of color. How awesome would it be to be able to positively influence these kids?!

So, plugging along. I’m working more than ever, and trying to change Yahoo for the better. My team continues to be amazing. :D
