Obviously I've written a profile for on here and that didn't feel difficult. I think somehow, because this was going on an organisation's site and it was about me in my specific capacity as co-ordinator for London activity for the charity, it felt like almost a work thing. And when I've written about myself in a work capacity before it's been very different to this. It's been all, Lorraine has 20 years experience working with top brands blah blah, specialist this, professional that, media, pound signs, business babble.
I said to someone on twitter that it was difficult because since the illness I'm unsure how to define myself. And someone else piped in that it is about REDEFINING. Ah yes. And I've got my head round the fact that I need to redefine who I am and who I'm going to be in the future. It's a work in progress. But today just felt difficult because I had to define who I am right now, in relation to what I'm doing for BTF and why.
I started by reading the other profiles of the other local co-ordinators and they were very inspiring. What a fantastic group of women, all of whom have been doing this longer than me.
This is what I wrote in the end:
And do you think the profile works? What else would you want to know, or have I said too much? Let me know!
Thanks for reading, it means the world!
