I left the Ghana Women in technology event with a number of thoughts on my mind:

-A line Otema shared  “I dwell in possibilities

Estelle  talk about how she had to put herself up for both her jobs in busy internet and Google , She raised her hand and said i am here , i would be amazing for the job, Hire me!

Pictures and Videos are on here.


Many thanks to  iSpace , Regina Agyare of Tech Needs Girls, Amma Baffoe of  Meltwater Entrepreneurial School Of Technology, Enyonam Kumahor of Thoughtworks  and Doris Anson-Yevu of GDC for helping me put his together.

It looks we are going to make this a monthly event.
