Wow Sophie, this is so inspirational. I have interest in the tech world too, but have no formal education on the subject. I am slowly trying to teach myself coding and programming. My dream is to also train under privileged South African students how to code and expose them to the STEM field. I am busy researching for a mentor and a company where I can volunteer so I can learn more. Please keep motivating us and being an inspiration.
