I am an unconventional learner, I zigzaged my way to most of what I know. I early discovered that I wanted to learn so much more than most, that I grew restless faster than colleagues and classmates. I always had a bunch of projects going on, I dug deeper into design and web development when I worked in communication, I learned basic programming because I wanted to understand the tools I was using. Technology always intrigued me, and I felt like i couldn’t stand NOT understanding it. It would be like seeing all those books and texts and not being able to read more than the big letters on the cover. Meanwhile, I love working with people and leadership, personal development and bringing people closer (working with such challenges as integration, diversity and inclusion) are also in my biggest interest.
Earlier, I felt like I had to hide my huge interest in people when I worked with technology and design. Or the opposite, hide my inner tech/design-geek when I worked with leadership education, personal development workshops or coaching. I was afraid I would seem too messy, or like I wasn’t honest about my passions. But the more I allowed myself to be it all the more I discovered that most people just squeeze themselves into tiny boxes despite being multifaceted and thereby hiding some of their biggest skills. What a waste! I’m not wasting that I am a multipotentialite anymore. I have many crafts and many passions. Currently, I find my purpose in working with in the interaction of humans and computers, people and technology. And as always, I write. To make a better world for all of us (simple as that!).
