GOODBYE SAN FRANCISCO
Updated: Nov 4, 2018
There is a lot to be learned in the Bay Area, world reknown excellence, breakthrough innovation, self-development, life passions. There is also a lot to leave behind. Here are my 5 reasons to leave San Francisco as a Diverse Tech Worker on Independence Day: July 4, 2018
Good Bye San Francisco
See you later, maybe? There is so much I could say about San Francisco. It was an eye opening city for me and jaw dropping city in terms of personal growth and self-development.
I could say about San Francisco. It was an eye opening city for me and jaw dropping city in terms of personal growth and self-development. I will forever be grateful for my life's 5 magic SF moments:
1. I met my husband in San Francisco in a Communication Class.
Yes, San Francisco, that’s you, the hub of self-development mania in the 70s! You helped me find my voice amidst your endless commutes to the South Bay, your lack of “diverse” diversity, your ongoing VC buzzing and all your workout studios.
2. I found my voice in San Francisco AND i found my life mission.
When I left Montreal, Quebec, I was looking for some “out of body” experience to figure out what is possible? What I could accomplish… and how I could stretch myself and find my life mission. Yes, I found it in San Francisco.
3. I discovered new words and phenomenons like ‘polyamory’ ‘medical cards’ ‘spiritual beings / visions’ ‘the light’ 'Santa Con' and so much more.
4. I became an Angel investor for LGBTQ, women and diverse founders. I discovered a lot of talented, hard working and smart individuals, VCs, Angel Investors and Tech workers
5. I created The Coffee Club, a transformative learning program for women. More on that in another post. Other than the long daily commutes to the South Bay which ate me alive day after day... To sum it up:
“I left San Francisco to improve the quality of my life, reconnect with myself and unleash my creativity.”
In addition to that, me too, I wanted to see more people like myself in the streets, on the billboards, be surrounded by creative human beings - which I found in Los Angeles.
