“TechWomen introduced me to many role models for women working in the technical field; I was so inspired when meeting with them. TechWomen also gave me to opportunity to visit the US for the first time. It was so different to visit the place, directly interacting with the people, rather than hearing about the culture from a distance. Thank you TechWomen, I had some of the happiest days ever in life because of you!” – 2012 Participant from Egypt
