Asides equipping women with digital and deep tech skills to bridge the gender divide within the technology ecosystems, one of the major objectives of the Women Techsters initiative is to help these women access decent work and gain financial independence and stability.

Recently, one of the Women Techsters Fellows from South Africa, Jessica Mfisa Tebogo, secured an internship with a tech firm in South Africa. We are excited about this development and are encouraged to keep creating opportunities for people to learn and acquire skills that will take them one step closer towards financial inclusion. In a conversation with Jessica, she shared with us how she got into the Fellowship, her learning experience so far, and an encouraging word for young women like her.

Congratulations, Jessica! We wish you all the best even as you begin this new phase in your career.
