2020 was a pile of hot garbage, but it wasn’t all bad. I spent some time briefly reflecting on my accomplishments for the year. Here’s what I’ve done to stay in motion and continue to strive for personal and professional growth, even in a year that kept me pivoting.
- Completed coursework in Python and Linux, and am even closer to a computer science degree.
- Developed my personal brand and story by expanding my professional network and seeking mentorship from accomplished women in gaming and tech.
- Took on an enriching new role as a Blizzard PM intern with the Overwatch game site team, where I delivered the Summer Games event page project as well as a Confluence data organization project in just 9 weeks of 100% remote work and onboarding.
- Successfully completed coursework and passed the exam for Scrum Master Certification.
Moving into 2021, new opportunities with dream employers await on the horizon! I will be exploring these options and finding the best path in the coming weeks. Academically, I plan to have accomplished 2 more of my required courses by the end of the year (possibly all 3 that remain), meaning I’d be done with my computer programming degree!
