Developers in Vogue (DiV) has been very instrumental into becoming who I am today. The first day I came in contact with them was my turning point; this was at DIVA Festival 2018. I was introduced to the Kosmos Innovation Center AgriTech challenge for the first time at this program. Through mentorship and guidance from the DiV team, I applied and got selected into the competitive program.

Through the Kosmos Innovation Center (KIC), I own a company now! I had always wanted to start a business but didn’t know how to; so I’m very excited to be living in the…

When I received the email in August that I had been selected to attend GHC, I knew it was going be the best part of my year. Fast forward to today, I can say it definitely was . I cannot believe I am still reeling from my experience at the Grace Hopper conference 2019. A big thank you to AnitaB.org for the great privilege to attend #GHC19, the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. What an awesome experience !

I met tons of women from all over the world and attended a myriad of inspiring sessions. My absolute favorite from…

These were some of the lessons we learnt from our Meet the Boss session with Mohini.

As a woman in a tech company, you sometimes feel intimidated but hey keep your eyes open and work hard until you realize your dreams.

Mohini studied English and Multimedia Journalism and her passion lies in exploring…

We should take a break and look at these. According to the Oxford dictionary, technology is defined as scientific knowledge used in practical ways in industry. …

Favourites! We all have one of those, whether it’s that shoe you can’t let go off or that dress you simply refuse to outgrow. Maybe it’s the person you would rather miss an event than go out without or the celebrity you never get tired of celebrating. In my list of favourite things, I decide to bring up my favourite websites. Just like you and your favourites, these websites are my favourite for a reason- actually, different reasons. You may like that shoe because it’s comfy and especially on days where you may decide to trace your roots as a…

Is it too much time, or a reasonable amount? And is it helping you to be productive?

Surprisingly, for us internet savvy generation, it is pretty easy to get bigoted with the medium. Given the sheer scale of the internet, there is so much to see, do and learn and yet most of us find ourselves thinking otherwise. In this blog, I will talk about how much time I spend online each week and how useless or productive I find it. Trust me, there is a lot more to the internet than we think.

I believe the internet at this…

I participated in the just ended She Loves Innovation Bootcamp in Accra organized by Developers in Vogue . The purpose of the bootcamp was to women to pursue a career in tech by learning the fundamentals of web development with focus on Javascript and React.

This whole experience taught me a lot more than web development.

Luckily for me, there was an open opportunity to join the Bootcamp which I gladly did. After a while, I got to meet all the ladies and mentors. …

Code, Connect, Collaborate were the three magical words introduced to us at #STEM4G.
