Farida launched her YouTube channel and posted her first video!

In her own words:

“Although in real life I am super energetic and confident, in front of the camera I would get very nervous. I decided to challenge myself and learn how to talk in front of the camera. I created my channel to talk about events, tech communities, entrepreneurship, growth, branding and marketing. The goal is to inspire people for self and career development in tech especially.”

27th Birthday in Quarantine🎉! . Although this year is quite different with how I will be celebrating my birthday, I can say that I already feel the love around me from all my friends and family. I may not be able to celebrate with people in the flesh, but I sure as hell am grateful I can celebrate through technology 💗🙏🏼. . This year, since I have a TON of time on my hands, I took to TikTok and asked everyone to give me suggestions for how I should celebrate my birthday in quarantine. The top liked comment was to bake a cake in the share of an Erlenmeyer flask! So… that’s exactly what your girl did! Let me just say, this was A LOT harder than I expected 😅 and I have so much more respect for cake bakers out there 🎂 🙈! . Nonetheless baking this cake made me feel like a kid again and took to burn off of turning 27🙈😩. . . . . #birthdaygirl #quarantinebirthday #birthdaycake #birthday #science #birthdaycakes

Kaylee accepted a new job offer!

She transitioned to a different team within her company, taking head-on all of the challenges that quarantine brings with this move.

That’s incredibly brave and exciting, Kaylee! We are all super excited for you and can’t wait to hear your learnings from this transition and the role itself. You go, girl!

Exciting announcement!! . . For those of you who read my last post you got a mini sneak peak but I have officially started on a new team within my company!! . . Transitioning mid-social distancing/remote working is really different and I was super anxious about it so I thought I would share with you all some of the thoughts I had as I wrapped up with my old team and prepped for my transition. . . Hopefully those of you who are about to be in similar positions whether it's switching teams, jobs, or even starting a new job will find it helpful!
