Empower Women in STEM to Realize their Unique Potential
July 8, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Sharon Jones
In 2015, Mash was looking to find a job in Europe – that would also sponsor her work visa. With a background in marketing, it was difficult to stand out from other recent graduates, even despite her Master’s degree. So she decided to make myself more employable by adding coding skills to her resume – and she started teaching herself how to code. She found the experience pretty intimidating, especially since there are so many stereotypes around being a woman in tech but knew this was important to continue. Masha was always curious about starting a blog and the journey of learning to code seemed to be the perfect opportunity to start, so she created Coding Blonde, a blog to share her thoughts and journey. That blog has now grown to a full business empowering women to find their own potential in technology. Masha discusses her tips on growing in tech and resources to start your own discovery!
