  1. I really appreciate this program because this program really helped women to develop their career, especially in tech world it is hard to find women in tech so this will solve the limitation. But I live in Ethiopia and really wants to be in this program so why isn’t Ethiopia the eligible country in the program.

  2. I have always wished to be a tech woman. I believe this will be an opportunity for me to build my dream life about tech .

  3. Oh, Uganda misses out on this opportunity. Wanted to grab this opportunity. Can I give it a try much as am Ugandan?
