I’m a woman in tech, and this is what I love about it
Leigha Mitchell

I absolutely loved this! It could have been written about me. When I fell in love with science and technology so very many years ago, girls were actively redirected into teaching, secretarial and nursing type careers. After several years of teaching grade school, I rediscovered my passion and managed to jump into a technology job and never looked back. I applaud you and I hope your message inspires countless girls/women to seize their birthright and embark on an exciting and fulfilling STEM career path. Bravo!!
