Women in Tech Weekly Issue 10

Happy Tuesday! You know what time it is – time to celebrate some incredible women out there!!

So let’s get right into it, starting with:

Celebrations ??

Thaís started learning how to code to be a web developer!

In her own words:

“I started to learn html/css/javascript in my university here in Brazil, fell in love with it, and now I’m studying to become a web developer!”

Erjona’s first paper was accepted by womENcourage event of ACM!

In her own words:

“Well, 2 years ago I was a Sophomore having doubts about my studies in Computer Science. I went to this womENcourage event in Barcelona and met wonderful women with great careers in tech and that was so inspiring. Not only I didn’t quit, but I tried even harder and now I’m at Senior year with my first paper being accepted at the same conference that motivated me 2 years ago! So maybe I will have the chance to encourage other girls that have doubts about a career in tech this year in Rome. I’m so excited and determined to thrive, more than ever!”

I will not be another flower, picked for my beauty and left to die. I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget…⚘ #dandelion #makeawish

A very happy Friday to all! This week I’m forcing myself to stick to my goals and stop floating about trying to learn EVERYTHING at once! __ This means knuckling down and finishing my coursera machine learning course and finally making a real go at learning python – downloaded The Python Bible from Udemy to force myself to complete projects! __ @taylored_by_amy chopped my hair again today and I am LOVING it ❤️ thanks for always making me feel my best!

One of my favourite podcasts out there – created by the founders of theSkimm (which I read daily!). New episodes come out once a week and each one is an interview with a highly inspirational woman about their career, business, mistakes, etc. I absolutely love it and highly recommend it!
