Ireny's Story My interest in coding started at school when I didn't really know what it was, as we didn't have a discipline completely dedicated to it. I really enjoyed solving problems presented in class, I spent time creating various solutions to problems, using various methods. My math teacher always said you had a knack for engineering, while others always said you had a knack for computers. At the end of high school, my teacher suggested that I study science and technology, but I was more insecure so I chose a safer option. desire to change, but the conditions didn't allow me, but now I really want to learn and I think this would be the perfect opportunity. I really wanted to explore this side of me, train my mind, solve problems, pay attention to details, develop analytical skills, have new opportunities, be able to change areas, have a more flexible job, work in a team.

And I want to become more valuable as a person and as a professional. I was also motivated by the use of technology these days and how relevant it is in our daily lives. And I would especially love to learn from SheCodes because, I've been looking at various bootcamps and videos of people talking about each one and this one specifically caught my attention because of its focus on women and all its motivation in the fight to fight gender inequality. gender in the sector, I wanted to be one more to contribute to this. I would really like to break the cycle in the family, and become the first woman in the family in the technology area and with a strong desire to be able to exceed all expectations and help my family.

SheCodes Foundation Mission

Women currently hold 25% of coding jobs and earn 30% less money than men. In most developing countries, more than 65% of women don't have bank accounts and cannot afford to invest in their education. Female refugees also don’t have many opportunities to invest in their education and improve their career horizon - they often work in unskilled, undervalued, and low-paid informal sectors.

SheCodes is here to help provide women in developing countries and women who are refugees with the opportunity to learn how to code for free. SheCodes offers a solid introduction to product development, product design and product management.
