My initial motivator to join the tech industry was my grandfather, a practical engineer, having slot of tools at his yard where I used to play. So I work and study all my life in order to bring science to every day-real life processes. A. I. nowadays is huge enabler to help people in difficulty or special needs. 

Occasional Visitor

I started at a Microsoft shop working on a consumer goods CRM software.

I was inspired by 80s computer games.

- How will you give back to society? (e.g start a nonprofit group, mentor students from underrepresented minorities in STEM courses etc)

I’m actively involved in the Berlin community. I run the @DDDBER and @fullstack_js meetup and also run different workshops and speak at meetups and conferences.

#Inclusion and #DiversityandTech is an important topic (not only) at @microsoft #MSIgniteTheTour

Tech was in my live since i was a little boy. My father worked for a big German TV Producer. 

I always said: „I will never do, what my father did.“ And.... i did, what may father did. 

I wor in Tech for 27 years now and i have to do with many different people. Diverity is always a good thing. 

Thanks for inviting me to #MSIgnitetheTour and #DiverityandTech

Occasional Visitor

I started when I thought about what to study. So I wanted to do something with technology and People. 

Now I am an Office 365 Consultant and Trainer. I really Love my Job and the possibility to help other ones by working better together.

A lot of different and successful women inspire me every day and I am so happy that women start to support each other.


Thank you everyone for sharing your inspiring stories so far - please keep them coming in! :)
