We continue our series with Anna, who is originally from Ukraine, but now has chosen Plovdiv for a place to live and develop.
Anna is the Founder & CEO of Coding Girls - a non-profit that works to educate, inspire and empower girls to get in coding and tech. Anna is a regular speaker at tech events. Recently she has been featured by Web Summit for the International Women’s Day.
Coding Girls started as a workshop for girls and turned in the journey around the world. From the first workshop of 16 girls to 1000+ members in several months, Coding Girls is constantly growing globally with new communities, increasing the number of girls and women in tech.
“It makes me endlessly happy to see so many motivated and ambitious girls and women in Plovdiv at our meetups, workshops, and courses who are dreaming of becoming as famous as Elon Musk and making a difference in the tech world with a help of code!” - says Anna.
