June 30: Women in Tech Weekly Issue 65
In Partnership with my Free Habit Formation Worksheet
Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far and that you’re ready to celebrate some badass women and dig into great resources that they’ve shared!
If you’d like to submit anything for next week’s issue, please do so using the submission form at the bottom of this post.
Featured Woman 👩💻
Andrea and AI Coding
Every time I see Andrea’s posts, I’m amazed by her creativity and passion for what she does. She comes up with the coolest Machine Learning projects – if you don’t believe me, scroll through her Instagram! She is a true innovator and a leader, I’m very excited to be following this amazing girl’s story!
Snigdha made her personal website!
In her own words:
“Hi! My name is Snigdha and I’m a 16 yr old student in New York. I finally made my own personal website and deployed it for the first time to keep track of the purpose in which I do the things I do and connect with people on the basis of my work. I’m really proud to share snigdharoy.com!”
Samantha submitted her MSC thesis!
In her own words:
“It has been a very long 3-year journey. I decided that I wanted to switch careers from Industrial Engineering to Data Science and enrolled in a Master Degree. While getting my Masters, I got married, got a new job, moved to a new country and it was difficult to study at the same time. So I am just so happy this milestone finally came and I can close this chapter.”
"You may say that I am dreamer, but I am not the only one". . That moment you decide that you are going to start something. Something big, something that perhaps will take you a step closer to achieving your dreams. We are excited, pumped up and then we hit many bumps, mountains, get discouraged but when we really believe in our dreams, we fight and there is no better force that can move mountains like dreams that are still alive. . Scientist, inventors, writers, authors and many historical figures have been dreamers. They dreamt of space travel, of flying, tiny computers in their pockets. We are lucky that so many of them have achieved their goals and never stopped dreaming. . Today was a milestone. I got my Thesis approved for submission. It made me reflect on the first day I walked into Campus, I was a dreamer and my dream came true. It was a small dream in comparison to these great inventors but all dreams are valid!! Your dreams are valid. . What was this dream of mine? . A young girl from Malawi wanting to breakaway and be a citizen of the world. . In the words of daenerys targaryen "I am no ordinary woman my dreams come true" . #DataScience #Datascientist #MachineLearning #womenintech #learndatascience #learntocode #blackwomenintech #blackgirlmagic #steminist #stemeducation #pythonprogramming #pycoder #devlife #lovetocode #ai #techgirl #dreams #amsterdamblogger #girlswhocode #peoplewhocode #womenwhoengineer #womenwhocode #blackintech #diversityintech

Dasani turned 23!
Happy Birthday, Dasani! I’m sure you’ve had a wonderful day 🥰 Wishing you another year filled with fulfilment, new achievements and wonderful moments with people you love!
Wow can't believe I'm 23! This past year really did mark my transition into adulthood and independence and was a roller coaster🎉 If you're wondering how my day went @mathboiraul organizing a mini covid safe adventure and most importantly found cake! (still not sure how he got Seattle weather to cooperate though 🤔) Thank you to everyone who messaged and called – it means so much that you're thinking of me 💙 Now off to more adventures!

Getting Started with GDELT – created and shared by Samantha
“I used this Data in my Thesis and I believe anyone that is interested in topics of using Data Science to change or influence public policy should know about it. This blog post is also my presentation at the Deep Learning Conference in Kenya where I demonstrated how I used it in my Thesis.”
Career In Tech: How To Use Your Previous Job Experience To Your Advantage – created and shared by me 🙂
Changing career paths can be scary, especially when you have some work experience in a different field already. You don’t want that to go to waste, how can you use your background to your advantage?
To answer that question, I’ve interviewed three brilliant self-taught women in tech about their experiences and how they’re using their non-technical backgrounds to their advantage in the technology industry.
