Paola's Story It was back when I was in high school, we had an IT class that taught us the very basics of HTML and how to create simple websites. Ever since, coding just clicked with me. I always loved the class, did my projects and got good grades in it, but unfortunately they took it out the curriculum in 10th grade, so I couldn't pursue the class anymore. But that's how I knew coding and computers were my thing. Then, after years of not going back to do some coding, I came across promoted facebook posts about coding bootcamps around 2 months, started researching and sparked my love for it again!

🙋‍♀️ Paola's Motivation

I have always loved everything that has to do with computers, but never counted with the resources to study full time in college. My main motivation is my daughter, who's 4 months old, and to pursue something that I actually love and I'm passionate about, and see myself with a career in the future. Also, I want to provide a better life for my daughter and husband, since I don't want him to be the only one carrying the weight of providing for our family. Coding has not only awaken my motivation to do more in my life and pursue further education, but also has giving me the impulse to fight for a better life and job choices.

🤹‍♀️ Paola's Hobbies

I love to read, learn new skills, spend time with my daughter, go out to the garden and get some sun. I also love playing with my dogs (two big cute huskies), also spending time with my husband, my friends and 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.
