Tell us about your journey into tech?
I have been interested in tech for a long time but did not consider it be a career I could have up until quite recently. My entry into the sector has definitely been encouraged and facilitated by inclusive initiatives and communities of underrepresented groups. I completed two Code First Girls camps and then a Bootcamp this last summer.

How do you feel you have made a difference in what you do?
I am not sure I have made a difference, or at least not a big one but I feel that that’s ok. Representation has been powerful and its always uplifting hearing people feel that they are considering a career in the sector because they know someone like me who is relatable. I remember comments like this when I am feeling overwhelmed by imposter syndrome.
