Tell Me Why You're Awesome

You're awesome! I know you're awesome, I just don't know why.

Imposter syndrome is real, but recognizing our strengths and successes can help us overcome it. So brag on yourself, and tell me why you're awesome! Here's a template to get you started:

I'm [name], and I'm awesome because of [short list of 1-3 things that make you awesome].

In particular, [more detail on your awesomeness].

I'll start.

I'm Casey, and I'm awesome because of my skills with Java, Android, and Kotlin, and because I'm getting into woodworking and making a sweet-looking coffee table for my wife.

In particular, I maintain an open-source static site generator written in Kotlin, Orchid, and I just got back from Dallas where I instructed a few days of a Java/Spring bootcamp my company it hosting for our new hires.

And here's a pic of the coffee table I'm building! I think it's turning out quite well (thanks to my Dad, who'se helped a lot and has all the tools 😊)
