From the Mail Bag…

From the mail bag!

I am newly discovering Adafruit and I have watched
several of your new products videos, I really wanted to tell you how proud I
was watching a smart young woman running the show. I have truly never been
as inspired. Over the coarse of my entire life when asked “Who is your
hero”, who do I look up to or inspires me, I don’t think I have ever been
truly moved by anyone to answer, however I am so impressed and proud to know
that Lady Ada exists. Unfortunately I have let some people get under my
skin, discouraging me from doing the things that make me happy (programming,
carpentry and electronics) that I never met my full potential. I didn’t have
any person to reinforce the idea that it was okay for me to be me and I
dimmed my light to make others more comfortable. I feel like I am stronger
knowing you exist. I guess what I am saying is thank you for existing 🙂
