Having different ideas, opinions, interests can be quite lonely and lead to thinking about where you can fit especially in the fast-paced tech industry. Coming to the industry, not by a traditional path, being the only one in the room to have a unique opinion can be very intimidating. Being unique can put us in a position where we think that we don't belong here. After 5 years in tech being different brought me to this state - a software engineer, a founder of the Australia wide diversity community Muses Code JS, a co-organizer of the international organization Women Who Code, Google Developer Expert in Web technologies and international speaker. Being different is great!
