"I've always been interested in IT and did it as an elective throughout high school. Having diversity in the tech world is so important. Women can bring a different perspective that shapes and influence the disciplines-they have a greater understanding of what appeals to other women and that can be very important."
"During my degree I was lucky enough to be awarded a Westpac Corporate Scholarship, which included a 10-week paid internship. This led to a full-time job as an IT Asset Analyst before I even graduated. Now I make changes to our process, policy and systems that affect over 35,000 people!"
"During my final year at UOW I went on a 12-week internship at Facebook’s Menlo Park campus in California, USA. I got to work on their configuration management, which is responsible for configuring huge numbers of servers and keeping Facebook online and responsive. This all led to a full-time job offer!"
