The financial assistance from Iris® Powered by Generali’s Women in Technology scholarship will be invaluable in supporting my career in technology. With a newborn and a strong desire to make a positive impact in the tech industry, this scholarship will alleviate the financial burdens that often come with pursuing higher education. It will enable me to access quality education, invest in necessary resources, and participate in opportunities that would otherwise be out of reach. As a result, I can pursue my dreams and bridge the gender gap in technology without having to make a difficult choice between career and motherhood. This scholarship is a lifeline that empowers me to be the change I wish to see in the world, not only for my own sake but for the benefit of my family and the industry as a whole. I am profoundly grateful for this support.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” - Ghandi
As a woman of color in a predominantly male field, I am well aware of the underrepresentation that we face in the industry. This scholarship will help me overcome barriers by providing me with better access to education to develop the skills I need to excel in the field. By helping eliminate the financial burden of pursuing a college degree, this scholarship will empower me to focus on my studies and, ultimately, become a role model for other underrepresented women in the community.
