Tips for a perfect Grace Hopper Celebration from my own experience

Yes! I finally return from Orlando with a brain full of ideas, phone full of photos, LinkedIn full of new connections and a bag full of swags. Grace Hopper was one of the major highlights for me this year and I will always remember 2017 as the year when I got an opportunity to attend it. A big shout out to Microsoft for making my dream come true. 😊

Sipping on tea and coffee,

our drinks so frothy,

discussing our lives,

laughing, and feeling alive.

Adding a little humor of our own,

sharing the day’s satire,

you are what I look upon to

when I am tired.

You are my partner in this silly world,

to share, live and laugh together for life.

Beyond this Life


Beyond this life

where destinies are defined,

It’s going to be the world,

where we unite.

Remember my face

when we collide,

I will be the one waiting

where all fears subside.

We will grab a coffee

and discuss life,

the one that includes us

with you beside.

You are the desire

I searched in opposite poles,

always peeping towards

the dead hole.

You held me from dropping down

and found me like some lost soul.

You are the ink that imprints my soul

with the joy of love,

the one I thought was never mine

and obliterated the scars of my life.

Warrior Princess


I have a soul mighty as a knight,

calm as a shrine.

I make my way on my own,

leaving a trail of inspiration behind.

Put me to trial

and I will win it like all the time.

I am a warrior princess

who fights to survive.

Dear Mom


Dear Mom,

When that tooth came off,

I first told you.

When I hurt my knee,

I ran to you.

When I was hungry away from home,

you came to my rescue with all recipes.

I am nothing without you by my side,

You are my strength, my conquer, my partner in crime.

A day isn’t enough to define you,

You are to be cherished lifetime


The Love of a Mom


The love of a mom

Wrapping me in lavender scented bear hugs,

She would do anything for us kids.

Cradling our fears away

with bedtime stories of saving the day.

The love of a mom

Fighting like our combat warrior,

to build a future so glorious.

You are the angel I seek in strange souls,

yet come back to you when my heart is sick,

You have shaped me towards my goal,

While saving me through all life nicks.

I rest in those fields to dream,

watching mother nature gleam.

The Rainbow tied by it seems,

Worlds can be so serene.

And the color took me like a queen,

when flowers bloomed and petals turned green.

Filled with energy I rejoiced the spring,

It’s the nature full of bling.
