woman that lives in Mexico.

💰 Robinhood - Want a FREE stock? Valued up to $1,000

[00:00:06.680] Why do I live in Mexico?

[00:00:08.280] Because my mother passed away

from black cancer in November.

🛸 Airbnb - Get $40 off a home booking of $75 or more and $15 off an experience of $50 or more

[00:00:12.480] Twenty sixteen.

care of my mother and help out my family.

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

[00:00:18.160] So since I had nothing left,

I figured I would go explore.

[00:00:23.720] The world ended up in Mexico.

🎠 Skiplagged - Exposing loopholes in airfare pricing to save you money

[00:00:27.160] Stay there about a month, month and a half called my father and told

[00:00:53.200] Let’s get right into it.

[00:00:54.560] So this video is about the major,

major, major changes in my life.

🛴 Viator - Reserve your tour now and pay later

[00:01:04.680] I am now splitting my time between Mexico

[00:01:09.040] and Houston for a multitude

of reasons, No.

[00:01:12.440] One, of course, because of covid.

[00:01:16.120] Another one is because of covid

🗿 Groupon - Have used this web site for YEARS to find all kinds of deals in multiple cities all over the world.

[00:01:19.920] and their homes, because of it.

[00:01:21.960] So to do have a little bit deeper into it.

[00:01:26.240] My sister has been on a Cobie contract.

Booking.com - Get 20% off hotels

[00:01:30.560] Yes, covid is very real because I

hear all the stories from my sister.

[00:01:36.160] She’s deep in it in these hospitals and so

[00:01:41.200] she’s been traveling around and

working at these hospitals.

🤐 BaseLang - Unlimited SPANISH lessons for $149 per month

[00:01:45.680] And so I came back in December to help out

my old grumpy father and my nephew, so.

[00:01:55.920] I have like, yeah,

I’ve been back once in Mexico,

[00:02:00.520] but I’ve been here

in my sister’s apartment

💎 Fiverr.com - Need a website? fiverr | Need a voice over? fiverr | Need a logo? fiverr | Get 20% off your first order

[00:02:06.120] living, so

[00:02:09.040] that’s one of the major reasons

why I’m here and I’m coming back

[00:02:14.880] because I said I would help out my sister,

[00:02:17.760] get her life together and make

this buku money that’s out here.

📆 TrustedHousesitters - Travel like a local for less. Exchange watching someone’s house for FREE accommodation.

[00:02:21.600] Make a bank is so Hephzibah House

and and all that other good stuff.

[00:02:27.600] So.

[00:02:31.120] But yeah,

[00:02:33.280] no, to cover it,

[00:02:36.680] I mean, living in Mexico, it’s been hard

because Mexico is considered

🎖️ Allianz - Don’t let a canceled flight, stress you out…get travel insurance.

[00:02:44.440] third world still, even though it’s one

of the vacation destinations on Earth.

[00:02:53.600] And it can have its modernize and its

[00:02:58.720] shittiness, I guess, if that’s

what you want to call it, but

[00:03:04.920] there is no unemployment insurance,

there is no benefits that they can get.

🔥 Raise - Get $5 and the best place for discounted gift cards

[00:03:10.160] So they don’t work. They don’t eat.

[00:03:13.320] My Mexican family has literally

worked this whole time outside.

[00:03:18.520] There is no remote work.

[00:03:19.880] You know, very few

people have remote work,

🤤 Uber Eats - Want food delivered straight to your home from your favorite restauarant? Try us with some free money! Use the code: eats-elyser416ui

[00:03:23.640] so it’s very different.

[00:03:24.760] I was in the house the whole time, almost

[00:03:29.640] only really went out

[00:03:32.080] to go to the bank to get my rent

🚗 Uber - Try Uber with a free ride!

[00:03:34.280] and to go to the spa, because that’s what

kept me sane and to meet with my friends.

[00:03:40.760] And when I did meet my friends.

[00:03:45.440] We have massol, Mike, it was a serious

[00:03:49.320] and if you go back to my other stories,

I caught I caught covid in Mexico,

🌻 Printful - Become an online entrepreneur and start an online store without inventory

[00:03:54.600] I’m pretty sure I think I caught it

in February and up at the hospital.

[00:03:58.480] So,

[00:04:00.280] again, I was very real.

[00:04:04.000] Let me see what else I want

to talk about on this video.

🦅 One Drone - Create amazing vacation videos with a new drone

[00:04:10.160] The number one thing that I want to talk

about is switching into a new career.

[00:04:16.480] I’ll give my background.

[00:04:19.480] I’m looking at my phone to make sure

I don’t miss anything at this point.

[00:04:25.640] So, yeah, I’ll be spending my time between

Houston and Mexico because I’m I still

🎁 Etsy - Give one-of-a-kind gifts to everyone on your list

[00:04:30.920] have a place in Mexico, of course

I love Mexico is home.

[00:04:36.240] I am celebrating.

[00:04:37.720] This is going into my fifth year,

but I am celebrating my third year

[00:04:41.040] of being a Mexican

nationality permanent resident.

🗺️ Lonely Planet - Buy three books about different countries for the price of two

[00:04:46.160] So

[00:04:48.120] there’s that.

[00:04:49.320] So don’t ask me where I be.

[00:04:50.600] It just be aware of it.

[00:04:52.320] OK,

[00:04:55.200] let me see my background.

[00:04:56.600] So.

[00:05:00.120] I literally woke up one day during Colvert

💻 HP - Get yourself a brand new computer today

[00:05:02.720] time when everything was just serious as fuck, and I was like, Hmm, well,

[00:05:07.800] I always said I wanted to be an engineer,

always willing to work in it.

[00:05:11.200] So I figured some major life changes was

[00:05:14.520] coming anyways and I probably would

end up back home soon enough.

❄️ AXA Travel Insurance - Every great trip begins with a great insurance

[00:05:19.960] So. I got on Twitter.

[00:05:22.360] I don’t know what made

me get on Twitter, and

[00:05:26.480] I noticed that there were people out there

like me, like black people, number one,

🚀 International Living - Retire overseas for less than you think

[00:05:30.800] and number two, other like geeks and stuff, because,

[00:05:32.880] you know, people like to be

known as geeks and so.

[00:05:38.240] I found out about tech Twitter,

black tech Twitter.

[00:05:41.680] There’s one hundred days of code,

🛸 Airbnb - Get $40 off a home booking of $75 or more and $15 off an experience of $50 or more

[00:05:43.720] and so I was like, well, maybe I want to

go on to programing, but personally, I.

[00:05:50.640] I enjoy programing.

[00:05:51.640] I do is just I wouldn’t

want to do it as a living.

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

[00:05:54.080] So I was like,

[00:05:55.880] but I’ve been consulting

with the cloud off and on

[00:06:00.120] in Mexico doing that, so.

[00:06:04.080] So maybe I should look into getting into

the cloud instead, and so I still learn

[00:06:11.120] programing and did projects and things like that,

🎠 Skiplagged - Exposing loopholes in airfare pricing to save you money

[00:06:15.920] one of those projects is news and I.T.

That’s pretty much what put me on the map

[00:06:21.560] and what I’m known for out

here in the streets

[00:06:24.800] on tech daughter is news and I.T..

[00:06:29.640] And so

[00:06:32.480] I got popular, I said, I do want to pay for the certifications

🛳️ Airfordable - Want to take a vacation but can’t afford to pay for the whole flight right now? Check out Airfordable! Sign up with my link to get $25 off your first flight!

[00:06:35.880] because certifications are huge and I.T.

and we don’t necessarily need a degree.

[00:06:42.640] They just want to know

that you have the knowledge.

[00:06:44.320] And one way to confirm that knowledge

is to pass certifications.

[00:06:47.600] Certifications are ridiculously expensive,

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

[00:06:51.040] as I say, barrier to entry and make sure

[00:06:53.080] everybody can’t get into it,

of course, but it is what it is.

[00:06:59.360] So like I said, I want to pay for them.

[00:07:01.320] And plus, living in Mexico,

I live very cheap.

[00:07:04.720] So, you know, me dropping six hundred

[00:07:08.120] dollars on a freakin exam that’s not even

including the training is is a is a major

🛴 Viator - Reserve your tour now and pay later

[00:07:16.280] walk to my pocket, so.

[00:07:20.120] I started doing research,

[00:07:21.600] now this is where my background comes

into play because I was an auditor

[00:07:25.440] in my past life, and so people believe

audit is accounting is numbers.

[00:07:31.080] It can be. It can be.

[00:07:32.360] But I wasn’t the type of auditor

that really dealt with numbers like that.

🗿 Groupon - Have used this web site for YEARS to find all kinds of deals in multiple cities all over the world.

[00:07:36.480] So a lot of stuff that I did was

tons and tons of research audit.

[00:07:40.600] This is nothing but research and following

rules and regulations and laws.

[00:07:45.000] And I did compliance.

[00:07:47.600] And so

[00:07:49.600] I would I would have to talk to people,

research on the Internet all the time

Booking.com - Get 20% off hotels

[00:07:53.680] and figure out what I don’t

know and fill in the holes.

[00:07:56.440] And so.

[00:07:59.080] That’s where I came into play as I started

researching organizations that would help

[00:08:05.360] and got my mouthpiece together because

[00:08:07.360] Close-mouthed don’t give

feed, remember that.

[00:08:12.800] And so I started winning vouchers

[00:08:15.160] and contests and and things,

and I started applying for all these

🤐 BaseLang - Unlimited SPANISH lessons for $149 per month

[00:08:19.600] programs and so I got all my training

paid for, or at least some of it.

[00:08:25.880] I do have a subscription

to Codecademy and Lenox Academy.

[00:08:30.280] I pay for those two things

out of my own pocket,

[00:08:34.120] everything else which you can see.

💎 Fiverr.com - Need a website? fiverr | Need a voice over? fiverr | Need a logo? fiverr | Get 20% off your first order

[00:08:36.840] And I won tons more stuff since

then on news in that I T-,

[00:08:44.640] I haven’t paid for much.

[00:08:49.120] So, yeah, I talked about my background. Let me see.

[00:08:52.080] Oh, no, I guess I didn’t really

go too deep into deep into it.

[00:08:56.560] I’ve always loved it.

[00:09:00.040] I started programing when I was

10 years old over the summer.

[00:09:03.600] I wanted to know how

those websites worked.

📆 TrustedHousesitters - Travel like a local for less. Exchange watching someone’s house for FREE accommodation.

[00:09:06.200] And so

[00:09:08.560] I found a website shout out to Lisa

explains it all was funny because I had

[00:09:14.520] reached out to her like a couple

of years ago on Facebook.

[00:09:17.920] And she had just got back to me like

last year around my birthday time.

[00:09:21.560] I think it actually was on my birthday

🎖️ Allianz - Don’t let a canceled flight, stress you out…get travel insurance.

[00:09:23.400] that she had reached out to me

and she’s the same age as me.

[00:09:26.880] So she was like, Oh, thank you.

[00:09:29.080] Like, I appreciate the love and everything

and happy birthday and stuff.

[00:09:33.040] And I was like, oh, good.

[00:09:35.600] Because, like, because of you,

[00:09:37.080] I don’t have to pay anyone

to do web development for me.

🔥 Raise - Get $5 and the best place for discounted gift cards

[00:09:39.480] I can figure out a programing problem.

[00:09:41.560] And and it sparked my love for it.

[00:09:45.560] But I took classes in college,

high school, blah, blah, blah.

[00:09:50.280] Icouldn’t find like a real internship.

[00:09:53.520] I won’t say I didn’t get internships

[00:09:55.080] because I worked for the government

as a little intern.

🤤 Uber Eats - Want food delivered straight to your home from your favorite restauarant? Try us with some free money! Use the code: eats-elyser416ui

[00:09:58.360] But, you know,

[00:10:00.920] I didn’t want to do that.

[00:10:02.160] So funny enough, I still ended up working

for the government as an auditor.

[00:10:05.920] But anyway.

[00:10:09.520] That sparked my love, I see,

[00:10:11.920]

so instead of majoring in computer science

[00:10:14.840] in college, which I really was going to,

I switch to accounting.

[00:10:19.720] And that was around the time when I

[00:10:21.360] started reading about H-1B and people

getting walked off the job.

🚗 Uber - Try Uber with a free ride!

[00:10:24.960] And, you know, companies didn’t want

[00:10:27.160] to pay, you know, to six figures to

to put people into these positions.

[00:10:33.160] And the entry level

positions is still bad.

[00:10:35.720] I mean, that existed long time ago to.

[00:10:41.480] Let me see what else.

[00:10:44.600] And so you became auditor number of years,

whatever started my little government

[00:10:50.640] career got Vesty life happened

with my mother, of course.

🌻 Printful - Become an online entrepreneur and start an online store without inventory

[00:10:54.840] And so from Mexico to wake up one day,

I want to be an engineer.

[00:11:01.240] I woke up one day.

[00:11:02.280] I was going to be an engineer and.

[00:11:06.760] That’s what I did.

[00:11:08.920] Let me see.

[00:11:10.760] Oh, I guess I can talk about

[00:11:15.000] even deeper into my background, so.

[00:11:19.080] And between that time,

I’ve I’ve had Web development projects

[00:11:22.920] that I got paid to do and, you know,

I kept my IT skills up to an extent,

🦅 One Drone - Create amazing vacation videos with a new drone

[00:11:27.800] but it wasn’t anything

that I could do at the time.

[00:11:35.280] I barely graduated high school,

I barely graduated college because

[00:11:39.640] my whole thing was I’m smart enough

to figure things out on my own.

[00:11:44.000] I don’t need teachers,

[00:11:45.320] I don’t need grades in order to tell

me that I’m good at something.

[00:11:51.080] So put that out there, too,

[00:11:53.720] for those that think, oh,

I can’t do it because,

🎁 Etsy - Give one-of-a-kind gifts to everyone on your list

[00:11:57.440] you know, I didn’t graduate high school,

[00:11:59.720] I didn’t graduate college

or I barely did it.

[00:12:04.280] You just have to have somebody that’s

[00:12:05.920] going to take a chance on you

and of course, get get your mouthpiece

[00:12:11.600] together because, I mean,

you have to be able to to sell yourself.

[00:12:16.200] To sell yourself. Of course.

[00:12:18.280] I mean, let me see.

[00:12:20.520] I ended up at an online school,

some no name school, because I was lazy.

[00:12:24.480] I tested out of a lot of my courses.

🗺️ Lonely Planet - Buy three books about different countries for the price of two

[00:12:26.400] I didn’t even take real courses.

[00:12:28.360] But I mean, no one looked

at my degree when I got my job.

[00:12:34.080] I just wanted to make sure that I took

[00:12:36.080] the accounting courses,

which I actually did good in.

[00:12:38.040] I got A’s and B’s in my accounting courses for me.

[00:12:42.640] See, but I mean, with I t I mean,

to an extent no one cares.

[00:12:47.600] Solet me see.

[00:12:50.000] I’m going all over the place.

💻 HP - Get yourself a brand new computer today

[00:12:50.960] I think I am this but I

did it, talked about Twitter.

[00:12:58.480] Let me see.

[00:12:59.360] Because I don’t want

to make this too long.

[00:13:00.800] I want to keep it under

twenty minutes at most.

[00:13:02.720] But

[00:13:04.320] let me see

[00:13:06.680] if I could talk more about news

and I t let’s talk about that.

[00:13:10.400] So I did an event.

[00:13:12.320] Was it last week.

[00:13:13.520] Yeah, last week I did an event where I

talked more in depth about how I won all

❄️ AXA Travel Insurance - Every great trip begins with a great insurance

[00:13:18.360] of my vouchers and got

all my training paid for.

[00:13:21.520] So you can go back and watch that.

[00:13:23.000] And I also link to it down below.

[00:13:25.680] But news when it was started,

[00:13:27.080] because like I said, people kept asking

me how I keep winning these things.

[00:13:30.880] And so I built that

[00:13:34.080] because I said I wasn’t about to do no

[00:13:35.720]

program and projects or nothing like that.

[00:13:37.600] Yeah, but to take this

and I don’t know if it’s helped me or not

[00:13:42.240] to get my position or all

the interviews I have racked up.

[00:13:48.200] And I will definitely talk about that to.

[00:13:53.800] But it is something that I built,

something that I love and

🚀 International Living - Retire overseas for less than you think

[00:13:59.600] that people

[00:14:01.960] pay me for because I it was funny because

[00:14:03.880] I told my friend I was like,

you know, I’ve never worked at night,

[00:14:07.600] but people are trusting me like

I’m some type of it expert.

[00:14:11.040] And all I did was build this.

[00:14:14.200] So I didn’t even have my position yet.

[00:14:17.520] But I was getting invited all these events

[00:14:19.600] and, you know, people were like, oh,

you know, featuring me and stuff.

[00:14:22.920] And I just thought it

was hilarious because

[00:14:26.600] as some of my friends are programmers

and engineers and shit like that and,

🛸 Airbnb - Get $40 off a home booking of $75 or more and $15 off an experience of $50 or more

[00:14:31.160] you know, like I’m just

a lowly auditor that no one cares about.

[00:14:35.320] No one ever likes auditors.

[00:14:36.880] So I thought that was hilarious

[00:14:40.280] and let me see er interviewing.

[00:14:44.160] So to get my job it took me seven months.

[00:14:47.040] OK, but it was kind of partially my fault

[00:14:50.160] to an extent because I didn’t

want to move to a new city.

[00:14:54.200] No one. I wanted to be remote.

[00:14:56.600] Number three, I wanted to

[00:15:01.600] I didn’t really care

where I really worked at.

[00:15:04.760] So start a big name company

really didn’t matter to me.

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

[00:15:08.040] I wanted to be a cloud engineer

[00:15:12.280] and I also didn’t want to work

90 hours a week,

[00:15:17.800] which I hear some of these companies

actually make you do that.

[00:15:21.280] Some of these companies like you have

[00:15:22.640] to be on call and all

this other kind of stuff.

[00:15:25.680] They want you to move to bum fuck.

[00:15:27.400] And I’m just like, if you don’t make

this position remote, like your crazy

[00:15:33.560] not move in the middle of nowhere.

🎠 Skiplagged - Exposing loopholes in airfare pricing to save you money

[00:15:35.520] Connecticut,

[00:15:38.640] I didn’t get really too many offers

[00:15:40.600] for for the Bay Area,

so I don’t know what that’s about.

[00:15:43.960] But a lot of New York, New York was huge,

[00:15:48.400] not so much for Texas.

[00:15:52.040] And most of the places were in the middle

of nowhere for whatever reason, like.

🛳️ Airfordable - Want to take a vacation but can’t afford to pay for the whole flight right now? Check out Airfordable! Sign up with my link to get $25 off your first flight!

[00:15:56.680] No.

[00:15:57.760] So it most definitely had I only

had really two one one requirement.

[00:16:02.280] It had to be remote.

[00:16:03.480] Like, I’m not I like to move around.

[00:16:05.960] I don’t like to be stuck in one place.

[00:16:10.360] And if I want to go to L.A. tomorrow

and work out of my hotel and then get up,

[00:16:15.520] you know, later on and go out and chill,

I should be able to do that.

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

so put me on projects.

[00:16:28.840] That is interesting.

[00:16:30.040] And I can always constantly

learn and I’m good to go.

[00:16:36.080] Some of the interviews I

had went on was ridiculous.

🛴 Viator - Reserve your tour now and pay later

[00:16:38.600] Like I went on one and they were like,

I’m not going to dinner, which I’ll

[00:16:48.040] continue to have to.

[00:16:49.480] Where one’s work is done is done.

[00:16:52.280] I’m not going to dinner is all your

fucking each other like I’m confused.

🗿 Groupon - Have used this web site for YEARS to find all kinds of deals in multiple cities all over the world.

[00:16:57.800] So

[00:16:59.680] another interview.

[00:17:00.800] He asked me if this was my real name

[00:17:03.160] and I’m like, well,

what other name would there be?

[00:17:05.880] Because I guess my name

is not ethnic enough.

Booking.com - Get 20% off hotels

[00:17:10.320] It’s it’s been wild.

[00:17:11.920] I talked to so many people,

interviewed so many times

[00:17:17.600] and apply for so many positions.

[00:17:20.080] So I’m not even going to give that number

because it’s it’s kind of embarrassing.

🤐 BaseLang - Unlimited SPANISH lessons for $149 per month

[00:17:24.400] It’s embarrassing. Oh, how many jobs I applied to.

[00:17:27.280] But again, people giving

me false information.

[00:17:31.600] I had recruiters tell

me the job was remote.

[00:17:33.600] Then I got there was about five,

[00:17:35.520] six interviews where the person

told me it was remote.

💎 Fiverr.com - Need a website? fiverr | Need a voice over? fiverr | Need a logo? fiverr | Get 20% off your first order

manager is like, no, it’s not remote.

[00:17:42.520] You have to move to Columbus, Ohio.

[00:17:44.880] What,

[00:17:46.560] like the recruiter, like, lied to me.

[00:17:49.720] I don’t know if that was

because it’s a check box.

[00:17:51.960] Come on. Woman in black or white, but

[00:17:56.120] the whole process over these past

couple of months have been ridiculous.

[00:18:01.280] Funny enough, the way

I got my position is.

[00:18:07.080] The recruiter reached out to me

[00:18:10.040] on LinkedIn, so when people be

like LinkedIn is not important,

🎖️ Allianz - Don’t let a canceled flight, stress you out…get travel insurance.

[00:18:16.280] one thing that I did see at my new job is

[00:18:20.160] that they don’t care

to look for black people.

[00:18:24.320] So if we ain’t even on air,

we need to be on there.

[00:18:28.400] So black people,

[00:18:31.760] black women, black men,

[00:18:33.720] how many jobs to get on LinkedIn and get

your LinkedIn together if you don’t know

[00:18:39.880] how to get on LinkedIn,

offer services to help.

[00:18:43.560] Because it got me my job and I recently

got another woman, a six figure job.

[00:18:53.440] So,

[00:18:56.040] yeah, get your LinkedIn together.

[00:18:58.200] But anyway, LinkedIn,

[00:19:02.560] that’s the recruiter reached out to me on there and my employers

🤤 Uber Eats - Want food delivered straight to your home from your favorite restauarant? Try us with some free money! Use the code: eats-elyser416ui

[00:19:06.960] blow the fuck out of me because I did one

and a half interviews with three people.

[00:19:12.920] And some of these companies talk about six

[00:19:14.600] interviews and nobody wants

to do six interviews.

[00:19:36.480] don’t do six interviews because it’s

not necessary to find somebody.

[00:19:41.640] And then I remembered my boss’s face.

[00:19:56.560] I told her, you know,

as I call them my stories.

[00:20:00.320] And so.

[00:20:02.720] And.
