I’m Diana, I am 19 years old and I’m from Chisinau. I’m a student at the University of Bucharest, faculty Mathematics and Informatics, specialty Informatics.
I heard about GirlsGoIT when the program was presented to Moldova ICT Summit 2015 and I participated in the first edition of the GirlsGoIT summer camp in 2015. After the first summer camp, together with other GirlsGoIT ambassadors, I created the local GirlsGoIT club in Chisinau, I participated in organizing the e-cademy program. This year, I participate in the creation of the local GirlsGoIT club in Bucharest.
GirlsGoIT helped me develop my technical knowledge and soft skills and I also want to help other young people to have this experience to discover this wonderful field where you can do so much that directly influences our present and future.
My message is:
,,Not to believe in stereotypes until you try, because there are so many different things to explore - from robotics, web development to artificial intelligence - you can not get bored. And one very important thing, talk with people who work in this field before making an IT opinion. Do not give up before you start.’’
