I am a computer science engineering student and I love what I am doing! I am so interested in discovering new technologies!

For me, every day is an opportunity to learn something new! It’s a dynamic world right here!

I am curious to know more; I even started writing tech articles!

First opportunity:

GoMycode, a school that teaches students how to code innovatively.

You can check its Facebook page or the site.

The significant thing there is that they are always organizing events for ladies:

like even moms can code and this weekend the Gomycode team is preparing a Hackathon for you ladies entitled: She Can Hack.

It’s a hackathon for ladies, at least 50% of them are! Such a great initiative!

This a small description of the event found on their page :

She Can Hack is an initiative launched by GoMyCode, xTECH and IEEE WIE ESPRIT Affinity Group aiming to empower women between (16–26 YO) in Tech-World by providing them the right environment to hack under a specific theme. We do believe in the great added-value women can bring in the Tech World, and YOU can help us reach what we envision by joining us on December, 1st, and 2nd at GoMyCode Hackerspace for a 24 hours Hackathon An interesting agenda is planned including a panel composed of successful Tunisian women entrepreneurs under the topic: “Women, Entrepreneurship and New-Tech”.

In order to be efficient in Techland, you, my smart lady, can be part of a lot of organizations that are in IT like:

Second opportunity:

If you are in a college that has a field of computer science or electronics, you may have:

The Junior enterprise club/association:

And if you are not familiar with the concept, it’s a club that encourages young students to apply what they learned in the classroom in professional life. Interesting, right?

Here are some junior enterprises in IT :


An organization that gathers engineers and searchers worldwide

Here is a well-known branch :

I do believe that clubs at the university are the best place to practice both soft and hard skills. If you are a freshman ask about them and be part of them!

Third opportunity:

Opportunities for you ladies :

The U.S. Embassy Tunis is calling women from Tunisia working in the STEM fields.

The #TechWomen program is now accepting applications for the 2019 program!
