Women Empowerment In Tech

My name is Bhagia Sheri. I am a 2020 graduate from Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, Jamshoro, and I am currently working as a Software Engineer at Bazaar Technologies, a leading Pakistani startup. One of my life goals was to be an independent and successful Software Engineer – I always believed in gender equality and women empowerment – it was just a matter of opportunity.  I had always wanted to try new things in life and step out of my comfort zone and so in April 2020 I joined the CIRCLE Tech Karo web development program. I believe it was one of the best decisions of my life as I was able to experience the amazing learning culture which we assume is only possible via (expensive) international courses. Tech Karo encourages women to step up and dream big. I was able to easily align my personal goals with their purpose. 

I never thought of it as just a course because it was more than that – it helped my self-growth, self-confidence and awareness. Tech Karo provided the soft skills sessions I needed to be emotionally strong, mock interviews prepared me for my real interviews, and different activities in this course nourished my strengths. During this period I managed teams which also strengthened my leadership skills. Team projects gave me a better understanding of team management and teamwork power. Indeed, Tech Karo has changed my mindset and helped me to be a better version of myself professionally and personally. TechKaro does not only provide the learning but also the platform to gain experience. It has proved nothing is impossible by converting non-computer science students into expert programmers through their exceptional course curriculum. Tech Karo has changed many lives via this initiative and I believe many more women need to benefit from this amazing opportunity. In this era, it’s more important than ever for women to be financially stable and independent to support their families especially themselves when most needed. Pakistan needs more working women to stand out in the world and nothing can stop us if we are determined to rise!
