What has been the biggest challenge you've faced since becoming a mom?
What has been your proudest accomplishment as a mom?
Having my baby girl and spending time with her on a daily basis. I feel blessed to be a part of her world and her early fascinations.
What has been your greatest professional accomplishment?
For over two years, I worked on an original dataset containing thousands of observations from the parliaments of five countries. My co-author and I currently have a journal article and book chapter under review for publication.
I chose to register for Develop Camp because:
I have been wanting to learn how to code for a while and Develop Camp seems to be the perfect opportunity to do so. I also wanted to join a community who can motivate me to achieve my goals. I'm excited that I'll be working with other moms!
I am most looking forward to the future because:
I am excited to learn something new and to code alongside other moms.
