Goodbye Gifts from Team

This is the second time I have received a nice parting gift from my team. The first was from Jing and Kim at Engagio. It was a custom book where I could draw things. It had sections of things I liked or hated, things I would say, etc. It was so beautiful and thoughtful. I love the back cover. I haven’t finished it, but I drew many little doodles in it. Jing and Kim outdid themselves. They are so clever.

Farewell gift from Jing and Kim from Engagio

Last night, I had my farewell dinner and the team gave me a framed piece of artwork that they all worked on.

You may notice that they drew me. I wish they drew themselves. It’s weird for me to have portraits of my own face on my wall. But they said drawing themselves would have been weird. Catch-22 I suppose! I still love it.

Alice made a little video showing how she made hers. Amazing!

I’m so grateful for the letters and well wishes from people. i am not the easiest person in the world to work with and it means alot to me that they go out of their way to make my leaving feel heartfelt and special.

Thank you all so much. I will forever be moved by your words, gifts, and love.
