GirlsGoIT has given me a lot of opportunities

April 16, 2018

My name is Liliana Covileac, I'm 19 years old and I'm from Hincesti. I study at "1 Decembrie 1918" University, Romania, town of Alba Iulia, Faculty of Exact and Engineering Sciences, Specialty Computer Science.

I like to say that volunteering is my hobby, the activity that makes me happy, and everything that helps me evolve. I always loved the exact sciences, but I wasn't sure what career to follow. After my first GirlsGoIT experience (summer of 2016), I firmly decided that I wanted to do programming, then I found out that IT is so broad and you don't have time to get bored once you get into the technology world.

GirlsGoIT has taught me a lot and has given me a lot of opportunities, it's the project I believe in and I'm proud of. I would like to share with other young people, little of the experience gained during the two editions. It would be a pleasure for me to work with the GirlsGoIT team because it is full of beautiful, soulful, wise and cheerful people who deserve to be on my list of models.

After the 2016 Summer Camp, Liliana became Ambassador in Hincesti and organized events in her native village and in Hincesti - Promoting IT Opportunities and the Spring Bootcamp in 2017.

“Never say that you can't or don't like something until you try to experience that. IT is a vast and beautiful field and I think everyone has to discover its secrets. We, girls, are strong and we have to prove this with actions, IT is for everybody, and we don't have to lead by stereotypes.”
