Nqobile's Story From a very young age, I developed a deep love for games, marveling at the intricate worlds and interactive experiences they offered. However, as I progressed into high school, I found myself feeling overwhelmed and doubting my abilities. It was during this challenging time that I decided to take a chance on coding. Intrigued by the idea of creating my own virtual worlds and interactive narratives, I delved into coding as a form of self-discovery and empowerment. To my surprise, coding became not just a skill to master, but a transformative journey. It allowed me to break free from the self-doubt I had experienced in high school and discover a newfound confidence in my abilities. Through coding, I found a medium to express my creativity and problem-solving skills, ultimately reshaping my perspective on learning and personal growth. This journey has not only reignited my passion for technology but has also empowered me to embrace challenges and turn them into opportunities for self-discovery and success.

🙋‍♀️ Nqobile's Motivation

I'm particularly passionate about promoting women in coding and embracing the role of a 'bigger' in the tech community. She Codes provides a supportive environment for learning, enabling me to grow as a coder and empowering me to inspire other women to pursue careers in technology. It's not just about learning to code; it's about breaking barriers and fostering diversity in the tech world.

🤹‍♀️ Nqobile's Hobbies

My hobbies are all about keeping things interesting! I'm a bookworm at heart, always diving into different worlds through my latest read. When I'm not flipping pages, you'll catch me on the basketball court, dribbling away and soaking up the thrill of the game. Movies are my go-to for some chill time—I love getting lost in different stories and genres. And let's not forget trying new stuff—I'm all about embracing the unknown and adding a dash of adventure to life. So, whether it's getting lost in a book, shooting hoops, binge-watching movies, or trying out something new, I'm all in for a good time!

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.
