Getting ready for the weekend, yay! 🙌🏼 💕 What have you got planned? Hopefully something fun!🍹⛱
I'm spending most of the weekend working on http://10xEducation.org and bringing 10x thinking to K-12 schools and programs - so that kids can work on 10x solutions to some of our most difficult challenges like #ClimateChange.
I was listening to some candidates over at +Silicon Harlem last night debate tech policy. Technology education is a tricky issue, but its important to understand that giving kids iPads is NOT tech education. Let's focus on preparing kids to solve problems and build rather than become just consumers of tech.

Vacation soon! 🌈

Perfectly casual #Saturday today - Jeans, t-shirt, and getting a lot of work done 🤓
There's so much happening this week!

Then its off to #DC for our infamous #TeamExponent #Moonshot Sprint on Saturday 4/2 at @CapitalOne with a hugely talented pool of participants and awesome mentors. We'll be spending the day solving for #ClimateChange via #robotics, artificial intelligence and #biotech.

Introduction
Katy (pronounced Cat-ee)

I am a Creative Thinker, always looking for the unexpected, improvement and change. 
I like good, simple Design.   
I am a Digital Nomad and Serial Entrepreneur.   
I am an Optimistic Pessimist and an Extroverted Introvert.
I am an Early Adopter of good technology. 
I Research pretty much any subject, I have a lot of interests. 

Paradoxical Traits of Creative People
Creative people "show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated." 

Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they're also often quiet and at rest. 
Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.
Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.
Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality. Creative people tend to be both extroverted and introverted. We're usually one or the other, either preferring to be in the thick of crowds or sitting on the sidelines and observing the passing show. Creative individuals, on the other hand, seem to exhibit both traits simultaneously.
Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.
Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.
Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.
Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.
Creative people's openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.
