This weekend marked my third SQLSaturday that I was a presenter. I wanted to take some time and reflect on my journey to this point.
Last year was a year of transformation for me. I decided to get more involved and got hooked on the feeling. It started innocently enough, I volunteered to help with SQL Saturday in Columbus. It didn’t take much at all. I checked the checkbox when I registered that I wanted to be a volunteer. One thing lead to another until it was Saturday morning and I ended up helping at the registration desk for the event. It didn’t seem like a big step at the time. However, by the end of the year I would realize that change begins with these smallest steps.
I am a self described introvert. Anyone who knows me would use the word shy to describe me.
