‘There is definitely a strong community that is willing to help one another’

             -  Hawah Nanyonga, Associate Site Reliability Engineer                                                     

How did you decide you want a career in Engineering?

I tried using online courses and realised I was good at coding and enjoyed the problem-solving aspect, so I decided to explore it further as a career.

What’s the best thing about being a woman in Engineering?

I would say the community of women in engineering is the best part. There is definitely a strong community that is willing to help one another, and you can build a great network from this.

Have you faced any challenges in your role and how did you overcome them?

My role includes a lot of engineering challenges. They can be quite complex, but it is satisfying to solve them and come up with new solutions.

How would you encourage more women to consider Engineering as a career?

I would say if you enjoy learning something new and being creative then you should consider tech. There are a lot of resources available to get started as well as ones specifically created for women such as Coding Black Females.
