HeroPress: Diversity of Thought

HeroPress: Diversity of Thought
Pull Quote: I became completely inspired by the mission of WordPress. I had become a part of something bigger than myself.

About a year ago, Christie Chirinos wrote the essay “What I Do Does Not Define Who I Am“. It felt like a big deal at the time, and it was, but like most big deals, it slowly faded from memory. That’s one of the reasons I do these replays, for the benefit of my own memory as much as anything else.

I simply don’t have the experience. I can read about it, but I’ll never actually have the experiences.

The story really needs to come from someone with experience. Christie has some of that experience, and she does a wonderful job talking about how WordPress helped a little bit. I hope her story helps.
