“… Creating a community and encouraging more women and non-binary to dare to take a seat in the IT industry”

Board Post: member Responsible
What made you want to apply to DataTjej's board?
Since I started my studies I have followed DataTjej's work and participated in a number of events which have been incredibly inspiring and rewarding. It made me want to be involved in creating a community myself and encourage more women and non-binary to dare to take a place in the IT industry.
What do you study or work with?
I read Marketing Communication & IT at Stockholm University.
What's the best thing about Data Girl?
The best thing about Data Girl is getting to know a community and at the same time accessing a large contact network consisting of inspiring women.
What is the most fun thing about your studies / work?
The most fun thing about my studies is that I have opened my eyes to the IT industry, an industry that has been completely foreign to me. At first, I chose my broad education because marketing communication seemed fun & IT is "good to have". But surprisingly, it was the IT part that caught my full interest. An insight that I am very happy about.
What other interests do you have?
In addition to studying and working with Data Girl, I spend my time in the gymnasium. I have been practicing gymnastics since I learned to walk and am currently active in the Bromma gymnasts and the Swedish national team.
