Women in Tech Weekly Issue Number 3
Well hello there, awesome human! Thank you for stopping by to read another issue of Women in Tech Weekly and to get your weekly dose of female badassery inspiration!
Let’s start with…
Claire is going on Sabbatical to work on building her own business!
In her own words:
“I took the leap to leave my job at Amazon for a few months and work on making my business sustainable. I’m going to be building it up and preparing for a couple of launches so that hopefully I can make it a full-time gig in the next year! Want to see the first part? Check out my store: https://www.artificiallyintelligentclaire.com/shop“
Sometimes you have to walk away to get to your dreams.⠀ .⠀ Today is the last day I am in the office before I leave on sabbatical. Coming to the decision to leave my role at Amazon to take some time off was not easy. It means that I am working away from a team I love and a promotion I worked so hard to get.⠀ .⠀ Looking back on the last year, there have been a lot of highs and lows. It is easy to get bogged down with the pressure to achieve in these high power tech companies. ⠀ .⠀ However, sometimes if you want to really achieve your goals you have to walk away.⠀ .⠀ I’m walking away so I can focus on building out my knowledge of AI and the community I love with my blog.⠀ .⠀ It’s something I’m super excited to do and I have no regrets.⠀ .⠀ Are you ready to walk away from something that’s no longer serving you?⠀ .⠀ Let me know in the comments 👇👇👇 ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #healthandwellbeing #emotionalwellbeing #wellbeingwarrior #womenswellbeing #girlbossparty #girlbossmoment #girlbossmagic #girlbosstribe #girlbossgang #entrepreneurwoman #entrepreneurstyle #entrepreneurmind #entrepreneursuccess #womenintechnology #bloggersuk #bloggercommunity #fightdepression #depressionwarrior #womenin #womenincoffee #technologyeducation #technologyblog #socialmediasuccess #socialmediastar #socialmediagrowth #girltechnology #girltechy #sabbatical #taketheleap

Dasani has finished her senior project and her last day of classes!
In her own words: “My team and I created an Android Application to prevent food wastage for our senior project. It helps you keep track of your food and lets you know when it will expire. It will also suggest recipes based on the ingredients you have in your pantry. We worked on it for the whole semester and finally finished this week!”
SENIOR PROJECT ✔️ — Swipe to see how relieved I am to be done 😅😅😅 My team and I worked on and @android application to prevent food wastage. The app allows you to keep track of all the different food items you have and let's you know when they will expire. It also suggests recipes based on the items you have in your pantry. 🌯🥘🍲 It was our first time making an Android application and we got to learn all kinds of new things – Android studio, SQLite, Google Cloud, and so much more. It was a fun time but so glad to finally wrap this up! . . . #appdesigner #appdeveloper #developer #software #tech #devlog #dev #student #college #app #androidapp #android #androidstudio #womenintech #womenwhobuild #programming #programmer #developer #peoplewhocode #coder #codingisfun #coding #codinglife #programming #programmerlife #learntocode #buildupdevs #codergallery #java#java

Kris bought her own home in London!
My badass friend Kris just got her own flat in London and moved into it this weekend! I’m so impressed by this awesome girl and her determination! Congratulations, Kris!!
Masha has become a full-time entrepreneur and is a soon-to-be digital nomad!
Yes, this is about my own milestones 🙂 I’m super excited about these changes in my life and shared my thoughts and emotions in this YouTube video!
I've been dying to tell you this, I've had some major life and career changes happen recently! And now I can finally share them: I'm now officially a full-time entrepreneur 😎 and my boyfriend and I will soon become digital nomads! ✨👩🏼💻 . I'm not going to lie, this transition is slightly nervewracking, but it's also so exciting! Change is necessary for growth and to keep you out of your comfort zone 💁🏼♀️ This also brings me a step closer to the life I wanted to create for myself and I couldn't be happier 🥰 . The last time I felt this way was when I left Google, when I was stepping into the unknown. Humans don't like change or uncertainty – if you think about it, both may jeopardize their survival. But in the modern society it's necessary to change, grow and develop! Especially if this means that you're going to feel like an impostor – and if you feel that way right now go watch my video on the topic, I'll link it in bio ✨ . So yeah, those are my news! I wish they had official you've-just-gone-full-time-on-your-business celebrations! 🥂 I'll have to start this trend 😎 . . . . . #selfdevelopment #digitalnomad #entrepreneur #personalgrowth #locationindependent #personaldevelopment #entrepreneurship #workanywhere #nomad #digitalnomads #remotework #nomadlife #hustle #workfromanywhere #entrepreneurlife #workandtravel #successful #businesswoman #girlboss #womeninbusiness #ambition #motivational #mindset #ladiesgoneglobal #femmetravel #growthminset #femaleentrepreneur #bossbabe #careerchange

– Dr. Shini Somara’s podcast which gives women in STEM a voice – submitted by an Anonymous Badass:
“I would like to stay anonymous on this. Which is exactly what her podcast is about! The more people that hear it the better as it is about women and their true feelings about the stem career they’ve pursued. I think this is very important and valuable to give women a voice without feeling like they will get in trouble for saying certain things or trying to promote themselves.”
Kathryn and Robyn have created an awesome podcast, diving into what it’s like to be a software developer! They give tips for learners, demystify concepts and talk about career in tech.
Laurence’s amazing podcast delivers on it’s promise! She covers questions like: how to choose the right programming language and how to use your skills in tech to travel the world. Perfect for aspiring techies and any self-taught programmers out there!
Claire’s designs crack me up, she is so witty with her play on words and imagery! Perfect for all of the nerds out there who enjoy making a fashion statement ?

Now that I’m incredibly inspired, it’s time for coffee and to conquer yet another day! I hope you’re joining me in that initiative 😉
