Guy imitates every type of Zoom user perfectly - no one is excluded

Most of us are participating in video conference calls in some capacity right now, and Zoom has become a staple software for everyone. But whether you use Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, or other video calling tool, one thing is universal—the diversity of clear video conference personalities.

A video posted by Reddit user VidGuy14 is making the rounds and making people laugh as they recognize themselves in one or more of the shots. Are you The One Who Just Woke Up? Or perhaps The Drinker or The Walker or The Busy One? (For the record, I was like "Eh, not me," until he got to The One in Front of a Window. Oh.)

Watch and decide:

There are a few folks missing from the video that deserve a callout, I think. The One Who Always Forgets to Mute. The One Who Keeps Talking Without Unmuting. The One Who Clearly Hasn't Showered in Days. The Constant Snacker. The One Wearing Gaming Headphones. The One With the Bad Internet Connection.

So many 'Zoom'ers. What a time to be alive.

Growing up in Virginia, Dominique Meeks Gombe idolized her family physician — a young Black woman who inspired Meeks Gombe to pursue her passion for chemistry.

While Meeks Gombe began her career working in an environmental chemistry lab, after observing multiple inefficient processes in and around the lab, she took the initiative to teach herself to code in order to automate and streamline those issues.

That sparked her love for coding and imminent career shift. Now a software engineer at Capital One, Meeks Gombe wants to be a similar role model to her childhood mentor and encourage girls to pursue any career they desire.

"I'm so passionate about technology because that's where the world is going," Meeks Gombe said. "All of today's problems will be solved using technology. So it's very important for me, as a Black woman, to be at the proverbial table with my unique perspective."

Since 2019, she and her fellow Capital One associates have partnered with the Capital One Coders program and Girls For A Change to teach coding fundamentals to middle school girls.

The nonprofit's mission is aimed at empowering Black girls in Central Virginia. The organization focuses on designing, leading, funding and implementing social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods.

Girls For a Change is one of many local nonprofits that receive support from the Capital One Impact Initiative, which strives to close gaps in equity while helping people gain better access to economic and social opportunities. The initial $200 million, five-year national commitment aims to support growth in underserved communities as well as advance socioeconomic mobility.

As it turns out, underdog stories can have cats as the main character.
