“I thought it was a men’s career, it was strange that a woman would be interested in computers, until one day I had a class in a lab named “Lab Ada”, my surprise was when I learned that the lab was called that way for Ada Lovelace, the first programmer in the world and was a woman!!. I think knowing that, marked me forever.”
