About CodeWomen

CodeWomen gave me hope. For a migrant like me, hoping to work in the technology field became possible when I went to one of the CodeWomen events. My perspective changed, I saw young women do their best, and I told myself that if they could do it, then I would work until they could do it too. The process is not easy, but with determination and hard work, I will get there.” Racheal Ehiwe, Student
