Identifying a woman to blog about for this years Ada Lovelace day has been really difficult as so much has been going on this year. I have had a difficult time of it and Hannah Dee (lecturer at Aberwyswth) took me under her wing and helped me through it whilst I was in Wales.
Whilst at Swansea I found my job and life in Wales difficult (basically I now know because of illness as well as other factors). It was nice having someone who I could email with a rant or someone I could ring who was supportive. She also understood what it was like to be in a long distance relationship so that was also helpful.
Hannah and her partner Roger, arranged it so I could have some time out and stay in Aber with them and do some work over there also.
I don’t need to write a post to say how accomplished Hannah is as an academic – because everyone knows she is! I don’t even need to say what a great advocate she is for women in tech as everyone knows she is.
This post is basically to say that you can be cool, intelligent and supportive but also be moral and not be two-faced!
