This is the last PressPause from Micah Dailey, so I’d like to say a warm thanks to him for helping out with this project. It’s been great and I hope that there’s a chance in the future to do some work together.
Today, Micah is with Felicia, who a co-worker at WPMU Dev. She’s not normally that keen to be in large groups of people, so it was a little out of her comfort zone to attend a WordCamp. But the desire to meet other people from WPMU Dev was too much of a pull and so she decided to give it a try.
She’s got a couple of great memories from WordCamp. The first is a time when realised that you don’t need to know people to get the most out of a WordCamp. Sure it’s great if you know people, but it’s also possible to make new friends. Felicia suddenly found herself alone and Amina stepped right in to fill the void. The two had never met before but they hit it off right away and taught Felicia that you can be your true self and connect with new people.
At a later WordCamp, she took this experience and decided to attend a WordCamp where she knew that there would be none of her old friends, but that did not matter, she met knew people and had a great time nonetheless.
The lesson here is that it’s not bad to go to WordCamps alone. Even if you spend some time alone, that’s fine, but perhaps it’ll also provide some additional time to create new bonds with new people; and that would be great!
And remember… Together we can #PressForward
