A Proud Wogrammer!

Wogrammer is a community founded by two women engineers to showcase the stories of fellow women engineers and their technical achievements, thus the name Wo(men)(pro)grammer.

Every story is a stereotypes breaker!

One of the stories you can see in there is my story, the story of the Tunisian lady who fall in love with engineering and is now trying to encourage more women into the field, the story of the woman who thinks “Just because we are a minority in the tech industry, doesn’t mean it should stay as it is. Women can be successful in tech just like men, all we need is to leave the comfort zone, raise our voices and get the credit we deserve for our work.”.

Full story is here.

I Am On TV To Talk Tech!

Back in August, I was invited to take part of Al Hurra TV show Hunna, to discuss the issues and challenges of Arab Women In Tech .

It was an amazing opportunity to meet other inspiring ladies from the Arab World, listen to their stories and share mine.

It is important to make our voices heard, celebrate our success and point to the challenges, hoping that it will encourage other women and empower them to have successful careers in technology.

Here is the episode, I hope you understand Arabic 😉


Twitter Celeb!

Twitter Celebrity? Well, not quite.

Actually it is one of my tweets, it went viral and got more than 5K retweets and favorites which is unusual  for me.

It was featured on the The Guardian, The Independent, Washington post, Buzzfeed  and many other news websites. The story behind the tweet is detailed in all the links listed here.

Social media is a very powerful tool to defend one’s views and to stand for what we think is right.

I am very happy with the feedbacks I am getting because of this tweet and the enriching conversations it engaged.

Talent2030 Hero

Talent2030 is a campaign to encourage more talented young females to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering – including software development.

As well as direct outreach work with schools, Talent2030 has been building up the policy case for change within government, business and universities, and have published ambitious targets setting out the numbers of young women the UK needs to be studying physics, mathematics and engineering – from GCSE through to PhD.

The organisation features on its website real life examples of people in engineering and manufacturing as heroes to inspire more girls. I am very honored to be featured as one of these heroes.
