The number of women in the technology industry is very limited. Many of us, including me, don't have the necessary funds to change the situation. So please help make a change in my life by donating.
I moved to the United States in 2012 after a natural disaster occurred in my native country. I was devastated and had a difficult time transitioning because English is not my first language. Although I struggled with communicating with my classmates and teachers, I adapted quickly. Despite struggling in the beginning, I graduated high school with a 94 GPA and received an award from my school for my ability to achieve excellence despite the odds.
Once I reached college, my communication skills dramatically improved, but then, I had to quickly learn to write compelling essays in English, even though I was still much more fluent in French. In the end, I overcame those difficulties and not only became fluent in English, but also became experienced in analyzing data.
Reason for Donation:
This spring, I was immediately accepted into a Data Analytics certification program at an Ivy League University, because I scored a 95 on the entrance exam (which meant I only got one question wrong).
As a first generation student, gaining acceptance into this program is a major achievement for me and my family. However, I quickly realized that the combined cost of the program, my current student loan payments, and my living expenses will be overwhelming for me.
It would be devastating for me and my family if I'm not able to continue this program due to a lack of funds.
How You Can Help:
Please help me reach my funding goal so that I will be able to complete the Data Analytics Program. Your contributions will help me become one of the first generation of women in my family to work in the technology industry. It will also help increase the number of women in this industry as well.
