Software engineering changed my life for the better in many important aspects. I grew up as an immigrant living below the poverty line and graduated with a non-Computer Science degree a few years after the Great Recession. I experienced joblessness and hopelessness for a period of time. The decision to learn programming opened doors for me to contribute to society in ways I’d never imagined. Programming also provided the financial resources and security that allowed me to support my families and friends ever since. Most importantly, I’m grateful to say that software engineering is a lifelong passion for me that it makes every day at work feel like play. I admire and support Black GIrls Code’s mission to nurture the next generation of technologists and increase the number of women of color in this exciting and fulfilling professional family. Our industry and the world will be a much better place with their contributions, and I can’t wait to see what they build!
