Reaching a New Milestone in My Career: Microsoft MVP

Hey You

I hope you’re having a wonderful week just as I am right now. I’m currently on holiday and didn’t plan to blog this week, but something happened that I needed to share with all of you.

If you’re not following me on LinkedIn or X (formerly Twitter), you might have missed it.

Yeah… that’s right. I have officially been welcomed by Microsoft as a Microsoft MVP.

What is an MVP?

For those of you who don’t know what a Microsoft MVP is; it’s a cool recognition from Microsoft for tech lovers who enjoy sharing what they know with others. It’s given to folks who are super helpful and spread their tech skills and knowledge across different communities connected to Microsoft.

So, here’s my obligatory article that I’m writing now, which EVERY Microsoft MVP has done, but this is a huge deal for me and I could not be happier about this.

I never had the desire to become an MVP; it was definitely not something that was on my path. It’s very hard to become an MVP and even harder to maintain… let me rephrase that before someone says, “That’s what she said.”

It’s hard to … 

It’s not easy to maintain…

you know what…

IT’S HARD… (that’s what she said)

What do I do that impacted the community?

Good question. I will let you in on a very personal secret. I suffer from imposter syndrome. I really don’t think that I deserve it.

I recently found out that most tech enthusiasts suffer from imposter syndrome, so I’m not alone.

Let’s hope that I can maintain this hard-to-get status (that’s what she said).
