Freshta's Story As a bachelor of computer science, my love for technology has driven my academic journey. Despite facing economic constraints and work obligations that hindered my pursuit of coding professionally, my passion for innovation and problem-solving has fueled my desire to delve deeper into coding. Beyond financial limitations, I'm eager to learn coding professionally for several reasons. Firstly, coding is central to modern technological advancement, offering endless opportunities for creativity and innovation. Mastering coding skills will enable me to contribute meaningfully to this evolving landscape. Furthermore, coding's versatility across industries—from software development to data analysis—opens doors to diverse career paths. By honing my coding skills, I aim to broaden my career prospects and foster personal and professional growth. Moreover, the intrinsic satisfaction of coding cannot be overstated. The ability to turn abstract ideas into tangible solutions through lines of code is both empowering and fulfilling. Each programming challenge presents an opportunity for intellectual stimulation and creative expression. Despite challenges, my determination to learn coding remains unwavering. It's not just about acquiring skills, but about self-empowerment, career advancement, and realizing my potential in the dynamic world of technology.

🙋‍♀️ Freshta's Motivation

The SheCodes program shines as a beacon of hope for Afghan women amidst challenging circumstances. Before the Taliban's rise to power, I led a typical life, balancing work and studies like everyone else. However, in the two years following their takeover, I endured a loss of rights and confinement to my home. Coding offers a global job market where individuals can collaborate and work remotely from anywhere. Enrolling in the SheCodes program allowed me to learn to code, advance my career, gain independence, and support my family. Despite the obstacles I encountered, it served as a significant chance for personal growth and success.
