Let me explain. This weekend I took part in #SheHacks2017, the world’s biggest all-female hackathon. YouContinue reading “Do things that scare you”
About three and half years ago, I left my full-time job at the European Commission to move to Australia and go to university. Since then I have gained a Masters degree, run workshops, managed an online project, moderated panels at conferences, set up systems to help a graphic design studio work more effectively and learnedContinue reading “Another change”
