Why sponsor me

By sponsoring me, you're sponsoring a member of underrepresented group in the open source space. Your sponsorship allows me to continue contributing to Python, give more talks, write more blog posts, provide 1:1: mentorship, and to further build the community. You'll also be helping with my own personal health and wellbeing, avoiding burnout, and take more time for self care.
