"I raise up my voice—not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. … We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back." - By Malala Yousafzai

Out of all the UN SDGs the goal of Gender Equality resonates with me the most. My inspiration came from this quotation. Women who embark on careers in technology often feel isolated, that they need to constantly prove themselves and have to struggle many times in this male-dominated industry. Myself, being a women in tech and coming from a Women's University, have seen these challenges and how achieving gender equality and empowering women out there can make a huge difference!
I wish to make an impact, a difference, by reaching out to all the women out there in my campus and beyond! A supportive and strengthening community to empower and help each other to grow.
