Rozeri wrote a plugin for Huawei mobile services at HMS team 🎉!

In her own words:

“My birthday is 27th august l will be turning into 27. I also started to work at Huawei mobile services in the past months. This month l successfully managed to publish an in-app purchase of react-native plugin for Huawei mobile services 🎉 Finally, this is my 5th year at a mobile application development platform as a software engineer and it is sooo great 🎈🎊💥🎉!”

Pauline hit over 200+ downloads of her new podcast!

In her own words:

“My latest episode is all about prioritising self-care especially in a world that is always go-go-go! I only released my podcast, where I share some of my thoughts around tech, health, relationships and becoming your best self, earlier this month but reached a personal milestone in under a month! I’m pretty proud of myself :).”

My health and wellness journey is a really special one to me. Everybody talks about growth and development that always relates back to some achievement at work. Whenever the topic of growth comes up, the first thing that pops up in my head is actually my health journey. Prioritising my health and self-care is the foundation of self-development for me. Knowing I can go from unable to lift 2kg without struggling to now lifting my body weight — that’s the definition of growth. If I can do that, I can do anythang with just a bit of effort and consistency 🔥 Here’s a few throwback photos from 2016 to today. My workout selfie evolution and body changes over the years 👉🏼 I have gained weight since my leanest (at 15% bf, now at 25%), and I’m OK with it. I talk about this more on my blog and recent podcast episode, but I guess I just got tired of exercising to get smaller. My goal now? To be the strong and confident woman little me always had potential to become. 🎙Podcast episode taking you all through the years of heath now up — find it on your favourite podcast apps! 📝 Blog post also up — I specifically focus on sustainability in my journey and moving away the “all or nothing” mindset. Here’s to another year of being overpowered ASF. 💪🏼 #pawgainz

We all struggle with self-doubt, the need for external validation and that inner critic that never seems to chill and let us be.

But I want you to remember that you are wonderful, unique and are bringing so much value in this world. Sometimes it just takes intentional work to recognise that – and we should all have habits in place that remind us of our own self-worth.
