Have you ever been told that you aren't a *real* software engineer? This is a story about resilience, self-care, and why qualifications are overrated. Join Amy on her personal journey from pre-med cellular biology and neuroscience major, to tech Youtuber, to founder of an 8.5K online community, to working at an open source container startup. She will discuss depression, burn out, self care, putting women on pedestals, and being authentic. This is a talk about pursuing your aspirations in spite of fear.
