Nowadays, technologies are accessible
to everyone

September 30, 2019

Hi, my name is Andreea Cernei and I’m 14 years old. I’m from Chișinău and I study at Theoretical High School "Mihail Kogălniceanu", 9th class. I like to read and I'm interested in STEM, being an aspiring volunteer at a volunteer club in our country.

I heard about GirlsGoIT last spring. In the summer of 2018 I decided to apply for the GirlsGoIT Summer Camp, to see if IT is for me and "Yes" IT is for me. At GirlsGoIT I was surrounded by true professionals in this field and from each one I learned something.

GirlsGoIT motivate me to follow this path and now I’m more and more interested in this field, continuing to develop and gain new knowledge and soft skills. This program is unique through its people and a friendly atmosphere, which is why I want to get involved in its growing process in Moldova.

I can say that the only obstacle are the stereotypes: what seems difficult is, in fact, something fun and interesting. Nowadays, technologies are accessible to everyone, and through projects like GirlsGoIT, any girl has the chance to acquire at least basic knowledge in this area. Try something new, and who knows, maybe IT will become your new passion :)
