Hi all,⁣ ⁣ It's 12:20 am, but I feel like talking to you all, so why not? I am retrospecting my content and super satisfied with this community I have built here. I am online for the next 1 hour. So let's chat?⁣ ⁣ What is that one thing I taught you in the past few months (or since you are here), and what made you stay on my profile? ⁣ ⁣ What do you need more? Carousels? IGTV? Live sessions? ⁣Please provide me feedback because it takes a lot of work off my shoulders. ⁣ Also, above all, how is life treating you? Hope all is well xx

Faviola officially became a Dutch citizen!

Congratulations, Faviola! As a forever immigrant, I know how stressful this process can be and how exciting it is to finally have citizenship rights 🥰 Very happy for you!

Today I officially became a Dutch citizen!!! 😭🇳🇱🥳 I’m half Egyptian, half German, was born in California, have lived in 9 countries, and have 3 passports… But I never felt at home anywhere other than the Netherlands where I grew up. When most of my friends around the world introduce me to others, they say I’m Dutch— yet that was never technically true. Now I finally am and I couldn’t be more proud! 🧀🌷🧡☺️

So I asked the question. If loss of job security due to AI influences who is able to secure wealth. Then who is entitled to wealth resulting from AI technologies? . A. Companies who own the rights to the technologies . B. Minority individuals who produced it . C. Everyone regardless if they were involved or not. . Results: . A — 22%, B — 26%, C — 52% . Guess these are expected results. AI is changing society very fast and this topic has been surfacing a lot again recently. . The ethical and ideal answer is C as we cannot solely trust companies and individuals to act in society's best interest. . I will talk more about this in my upcoming post. . #DataScientist #Datascience #MachineLearning #artificalintelligence #ai #coding #girlswhocode #womenwhocode #stem #learndatascience #programmer #devlife #Amsterdam #technology #techblogger #biasandai #biases #diversityintech #diversity #blackintech #blackwomenwhocode #blacgirlmagic

Steph has announced the launch of her dream company!

Congratulations Steph! Super excited for the launch and to see you making your dreams come true ❤️

In 3 weeks, I’ll be launching my dream company!! My original plan was to launch it back in May after my wedding, but COVID-19 happened and the wedding didn’t happen. 😞 Because of the pandemic, I was not in the mental space to launch my dream company so I decided to postpone it. I didn’t have a clear date back then, but I knew it was going to happen this year. . Fast forward to now, I decided that I’m going to launch it on August 1st. That means that I will have a new website and a new Instagram account running! 💪🏼 . If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love art, lettering, and illustrations. My company, SB Creative Studio, is going to do just that! 🙌🏼 . Visit @sb.creativestudio to learn more about the company. 🤗 On that account, I’m going to share more of my client work and entrepreneurial journey, and I will keep this one as a personal account. . Make sure to give us a follow and stay tuned for August 1st!! 💪🏼🙌🏼🖤
