Featured Woman 👩‍💻

Wanda and Wanda the Brave

Wanda is awesome. She makes a conscious effort to challenge herself and to look her fear in the eyes – no matter how big or small it may be. She is on her way to becoming a software engineer – currently working in data science, which she picked up as part of her pre-med studies. This girl will achieve amazing things and I can’t wait to see that + am incredibly excited for her as she becomes a mother ❤️
