Sheila's Story I was first interested in coding when I visited a friend from high school in 2023 who is a full-stack developer working remotely and he was working on a website and i thought that was very meaningful and interesting work and since then i have always wanted to learn how to code.

🙋‍♀️ Sheila's Motivation

As an individual who strongly believes in the transformative power of technology, I am convinced that coding is a crucial skill that can break barriers and open doors to opportunities. I am particularly drawn to your organization's mission to provide coding lessons by ensuring that women and refugees have access to the skills needed in today's digital world. I am deeply motivated to learn how to code not only for personal growth but also to be part of a community that actively works towards bridging the gender and refugee gap in the tech industry. I am aware of the challenges faced by these groups in accessing quality education and meaningful employment, and I am eager to contribute my time and effort to make a positive impact. Having researched your organization extensively, I am impressed by the comprehensive and supportive learning environment you provide. Your commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive community aligns perfectly with my values, and I am excited about the prospect of being part of such an empowering initiative. I come from a background where I have witnessed firsthand the transformative effects of education. I am confident that acquiring coding skills will not only enhance my own opportunities.
