Speaker at Ladies that UX Aarhus
Meet up event for ladies
I was honoured to be a speaker at the Ladies that UX event. Where ladies at Aarhus were gathered to hear about my experiences and my daily work. Discuss what we could do to empower and attract more women in the IT business. We were also able to discuss and solve some tasks during the event, had some cake and of course have lots of fun.
Run, run, run
I was a handball coach for two teams in Vemmelev. There were a lot of fun, sweat and a lot of exercises. The teams worked hard and tried to improved themselves. We trained 2 times a week, went to matches in the weekends and went to our yearly tournament at Holstebro cup.
ME, YOU & US
Find the best in you
Expand knowledge & experiment
Trying something new and out of your comfort zone can be frighting, but you can also look at it as an adventure. It is important to always expand your knowledge and experimenting with different elements. Remember it is okay to fail, as long as you tried. Trial-and-error is the way of learning and can take time to be good at it, but maybe you will discover a new hobby of yours.
Collaboration & Goals
“Great minds think a like.” Having talks and discussion with other people with great ideas is the best and it should not be underestimate. Learning new things from each other and improving each others skills by sharing knowledge, collaborating in teams in order to reach the common goal is so wonderful.
Challenges & struggles
It is hard to live without any challenges and struggles and it is not necessary a bad thing. Because we gather our experiences through positive experiences as well as challenges & struggles. It can be hard, however it is important to figure out to solve these challenges that is on your way alone or together with others, reflect and learn from it.
Positive energy & a good laugh
It is very important to keep a positive energy and have a good laugh once in a while even on periods with many challenges. Keeping bad energy for a long period of time in you is not good. It is contagious of the people around you and your surrounding and it will just not do any good. “What comes around goes around.” Positive energy is also contagious, so spread the vibe.
