What is a Vacation? Really

I recently went to India for a four-week-long vacation. Some people might argue it is too long to take time off and not the norm. People’s reaction to my holiday was more of a surprise – Oh! Wow, is that even possible. When we lived in London, it wasn’t that big of a deal because …

Simple Things In Life Are The Most Profound.

Deaf and Blind, BUT Harvard Law Graduate

It is named after a woman computer professional who went to write the initial code for COBOL.  The main theme that I took away from the conference was ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ and how woefully little I know about it. There were a few inspiring …
