and questioning everything."
age: 58 profession: Software Engineer
What is the best thing about being your age?
Freedom! Freedom to say what you really think because you've learned pleasing people doesn't really matter as much as pleasing yourself. Freedom to travel when you know the world is large and there are still SO MANY places to visit. And, most of all, the freedom to enjoy the friends that have taken years to accumulate – friends you are inspired by, awed by, and so grateful for.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Easy. My kids. They are what I want to be when I grow up. :) I'm so proud of who they are and so excited to see the people they grow into.
What is your motto or favorite quote?
"You can't stand out in a crowd if you are always trying to blend into one."
Words of wisdom for younger women
These are not so much words of wisdom but a plea for help to continue to make the world a better, safer, and fairer place for women by trusting your instincts, speaking your truth, and questioning everything. You've got this!
