Since my last post, it’s been a great start to the internship. I was really lucky to be invited to the Mozilla All Hands meeting in Orlando for the whole of my first week. All Hands is a biannual meeting that brings together all 1200 Mozilla staff from around the world. I was really pleased to be able to meet 3 other interns from Mozilla who were also there and was pleasantly surprised to find out that two of them had children and were returning to tech after having a career break. It was really nice to be able to speak to other interns and realise that we had the same backgrounds of taking non-traditional routes into tech, similar worries and act as a support network for each other. This continues on a day-to-day basis for the whole of the Outreachy winter cohort in the Zulip channel, where we can message and chat between ourselves, mentors and Outreachy team.
I’m really pleased to be sharing my experience as an Outreachy intern for the Winter 2018/19 round. I have learnt a great deal just from applying for the internship, so I’m looking forward to working on my project for the next 3 months and am particularly excited to be working at Mozilla.
