Sometimes it is good to reflect on the opportunities that we have, by writing this post I am lucky enough to have a laptop, internet, safe, clean, and encouraging environment. Others are not so lucky, from meeting a lot of people from different background it is easy to understand how lucky I am coming from a small village in Hertfordshire where my schools were a 5 minute walking distance, I was able to get a job whilst at school to afford to run a car at 17 and then to pursue university.
Many others are not so lucky, even within the UK there are many unemployed youth, homeless communities, and the disabled who would love to be in positions with less than what I and yourselves have. At some point in your career I would encourage you to remind yourselves of these people and do something within your reaches to help. I have fortunate to have the WCIT platform to help to grow an understanding of where I can help.
What can you do to help?
