Being a woman in a male dominated workforce is pretty tough at times 👊🏼 Feelings don’t matter as much it’s all business. Usually you feel you have to prove yourself even more. Then you outwork them + they realize you aren’t playing around. •
I started architecture classes in high school. Most of my friends took it as a joke class. By the end of the 3 years I was not only the only girl left, but also the only one who turned every assignment in on time with flying colors. I put in the work. I showed up. I took it seriously.
This week was the first time that feeling of being a woman felt uncomfortable.
Anxiety took over. I started doubting myself. I felt forced into a position I did not want to be. After much speculation with my family + friends I knew it was time to stand up for myself. •
Nobody likes to talk about it but any work place can be stressful at times. The most important lesson I was reminded of was to always DO ME. Trust my instinct. Follow my heart. Do the right thing.
Ain’t NOBODY going to stop me from shining man or not, that my friends will always be the truth ✌🏻#GIRLPOWER
