“You can get started in your spare time from home and fit studying around your day job. The best part is that there’s no age restriction; I launched myself in the tech industry in my mid-forties with relative ease. I started building websites for friends and family, and then found new clients by going to local small business networking events.
The tech industry thrives on collaboration. I’ve found male colleagues genuinely supportive, encouraging and a pleasure to work with. The tech sector is exciting and fun to be part of. It encourages open sharing and the discussion of ideas for the benefit of everyone.
Being a woman in tech has allowed me to carve a second career, work from home and still be a mum to my two teenage boys. I’ve started my own business as a freelance web designer, and ventured into the world of tech startup. I still want to be a mum. Children grow up so quickly and I don’t want to miss those precious moments. But I’m also me, and I don’t want to stop challenging myself either. Becoming a woman in tech means having my cake and eating it”.
