Celebrations 🥂🎉

Kajal is celebrating her youtube video crossing 2k views (highest for her channel)!

Kajal Gada says:

Most students have this fear that if you don’t have internship it is difficult to find a job. That is not true, there are plenty of ways to show experience and it can actually help you stand out from other applications.

Ioana celebrated her Birthday!

Ioana says:

Let’s celebrate age! I’m older now.. I would like to say wiser too but that’s up to the future to prove it. But, even if I would have canceled the birthday cause it is a pandemic around us, and I would celebrate it in a few months, I would not cancel the age. Thirty something – but who counts them really in numbers more than in moments?

Sam celebrated launching her new series “What The Tech?” and releasing a new episode!

Sam says:

I launched a Youtube series called “What The Tech?” that aims to demystify different jobs in tech and attract people, both technical and NON-technical, to join and reap the benefits of the tech industry. My latest episode just came out about cyber security –> https://youtu.be/3kMJIP0s4-o

Selma is celebrating being brave enough to start a new Instagram account on tech, VC and entrepreneurship!

Selma says:

Everyone who knows me well knows that I advocate for more diversity-driven approaches in the investment industry and tech entrepreneurship because I know how it feels to be an outsider in those industries. We need more initiatives to close the opportunity gaps for founders and funders (not only related to gender) which is one of my main motivations for this Instagram blog: I want to contribute to progress by giving such issues a voice.
