I’m an imposter

2021-09-02 I'm an imposter

I’m an imposter.

I don’t have a computer science degree.

I haven’t been in the Corporate America scene my whole career.

I took a non-traditional path to Microsoft.

What are some unexpected things I’ve done in my career?
— I’ve sold real estate and am still a licensed broker for 20 years now.
— I worked in manufacturing where I had to wear a hard-hat and steel-toed safety shoes.
— I was a technician working at the base of cell phone towers where I’d have to work the midnight shift to re-wire cabinets.
— I was a Wella Hair Model and performed in a live runway show in Las Vegas.

And now that I work at Microsoft, I find myself surrounded by people with computer science degrees that have worked at places like Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Apple.

And guess what?

I fit right in.

I do my job and I do it well.

My diverse background and perspective help me add value to my team.

I’ve seen the world outside of technology.

I’ve worked in lots of places in different industries with a variety of people.

The path to tech careers isn’t always a straight line. It’s okay to zig-zag creating your own path.

I hope you’ll be an imposter like me!
