The Power Pose

8Th of March marks the International Women’s Day, may we never need just one day to celebrate women’s achievements, recognise their rights or highlight their struggles.

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 😉
