Well, it was not a difficult choice, explains Toptal’s Director of Engineering, Anna-Chiara Bellini, who is also leading judge on the scholarship selection committee: “Rojina’s application [for the scholarship] just blew us away. She is both brilliant and ambitious, and is not only working hard to develop her own skills, but is also doing amazing things to build and support a community of female technologists around her in Nepal.” Indeed, Rojina only started up professional software coding last year. Now she’s already a Node.js software developer at Zyoba Lab Pvt. Ltd. and creating her own Python-based eCommerce application, Hamropasal, plus she’s making training videos and organising courses every week as co-founder of the rapidly growing women programmers’ network, Girls in Technology, passionate about helping and inspiring other girls to get started too!
Read Rojina’s fascinating story right here and learn how she’ll use the scholarship and how she and her friends are helping more young women getting prepared for jobs in Nepal’s growing tech sector.
