Naila has launched the Instagram account of her new dress line S.O.D.E. – that she has co-founded! ?

In her own words:

“S.O.D.E. is a brand that literally stands for 4 chemicals that activate our happiness (Serotonin, Oxytocin, Dopamine, Endorphins). I wanted to create a space for women to challenge their idea of happiness when it comes to fashion and consumption. Our motto is Happy on the inside – Happy on the outside!”

Karina won the Apple WWDC Scholarship – for the third year in a row! ✨

In her own words:

“I’m a 21 years old Brazilian Computer Engineering student, passionate about code and design! Apple every year launches a worldwide competition for students so they can attend WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) in California. This year my app was about Nancy Grace Roman, the first woman to hold an executive position at Nasa and responsible for launching Hubble into space! I wanted to develop a project that would inspire girls to pursue STEM, and also inspire them to participate in this type of competitions! It’s my third year winning this scholarship, and I’d love to see more girls there! <3 The conference will be in the first week of June! It’s so close and I’m so excited!”

Congratulations, Karina!! You are such a badass for participating and winning and I love your choice of project! Super well done, girl ❤️

How I became a Software Engineer in Silicon Valley⁣ ⁣ I was a Chemical Engineering major, however, I was able to successfully learn programming and make a transition into tech. ⁣ ⁣ I spent about 6 months learning to code on my own with a goal of getting an internship as a software engineer in Silicon Valley. I worked hard, spent days and sometimes nights at the library, but it all paid off 😌⁣ ⁣ 7 months after started, I landed an internship at Yelp on their Android team. ⁣ ⁣ Fast forward to another semester, I got 6 different offers: LinkedIn, Airbnb, and Microsoft being some of them. I decided to join Airbnb for my internship which then I joined full time as a backend engineer after graduating.⁣ ——⁣ ⚠️I am launching a webinar on How To Get Internships At Top Tech Companies full of personal examples and experiences, and a Q&A section at the end. I will be sharing how to reach out to companies, craft your resume, write cold emails, prepare for different types of interviews, and much more! ⁣ ➡️Details and registration are at www.lifeofluba.com/internship Reserve your spot soon as the capacity will be limited! (Active link is in the profile). So excited!
