Who has been your biggest inspiration?
Given the occasion, I decided to think about which woman in tech and entrepreneurship stood out for me in providing an inspiration. I realised that I'm inspired every day by women who take risks in this field and start something innovative on their own. Perhaps it's telling that I struggled to single out one key figure. Hence, lists such as these are an excellent initiative to help make the achievements of women in tech more transparent.
Why should more girls get into tech?
One of the things that I've enjoyed about the tech community is the interesting range of people I've met and had the pleasure of learning from. Having more women in tech will serve to enhance the diversity and richness of the community all for the better, especially with regards to the introduction of exciting ideas.
Where do you see yourself in 25 years?
The plan is to refine and develop my coding skills, and then create my own startups. Hopefully by the time the next 25 years are up I will have had some successful ventures and have changed the lives of some people, through the companies I run and through sharing the knowledge I pick up along the way. I'm keen to disrupt the education and publishing industries.
