Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite logo Two interlocking ribbons, one red, one blue. The word Lite is across the logo in a playful font. The podfeet (two little bare feet) are in the upper right. The background is dark blue with Chat and Chat in the upper left and lower right corners with "across the pond" in thin letter across the bottom. Sounds more confusing than it is!

CCATP #508 – Allison Sheridan Tells Her Woman’s Story

I’ve been impressed by the women who have stepped forward and told their stories about what life is like for us. I don’t have any salacious tale to tell but rather a thousand paper cuts type of story. I thought about doing a monologue but I was terribly anxious about talking through this, so I reached out to Bart Busschots because I trusted him to help me.

I decided to push the audio out in both the NosillaCast and Chit Chat Across the Pond feeds, well, because I wanted you to hear it.

    I never gave too much consideration to how much a female probably had to deal with especially in the engineering field.

    Thanks for sharing your story.

    I went to public schools all of my life as a completely blind individual, and a certain time between third and fourth grade, I recall going to a school that wasn’t very pleasant.

    I don’t remember the kids making fun of me, however two years ago, a young man who apparently used to go to school with me and be one of the ringleaders encouraging the other kids to make fun of me found me via social media.

    He told me what school he was from, and asked that I give him a call.

    Admittedly, I was slightly nervous!

    Long story short though, he simply wanted to apologize and realized that he was an asshole!

    Ultimately, come to find out, like myself he had a very difficult childhood.

    Though it doesn’t make any excuses for some of the things that were done in the past, it does say a lot for his character now

    Keep on keeping on!
