What brought you to a career in technology at the United Nations?
As a social media specialist, I am helping raise awareness about important issues, promoting sustainable development goals, and advocating for human rights across different countries and cultures, specifically through the lens of technology. Social media has the power to reach millions of people worldwide and I am happy to be doing this work with this intention.
What has been your favorite IT project at the United Nations and what was your technical contribution?
Diversity in technology is crucial for innovation and progress. By pursuing your passion in technology, you can help shape the future and inspire others to do the same. It has been a pleasure to tell the story of dozens of women in technology, who are committed to doing good, at the United Nations.
What advice would you give women interested in pursuing a field in technology?
Believe in yourself. Recognize your skills, abilities, and potential. Trust that you deserve to be in the field of technology and have valuable contributions to make.
