"The experiences and knowledge I’ve gained from ITWomen’s investment in my education are immeasurable. Through ITWomen’s support, I have accomplished much of what I once thought was impossible. I hope to one day give back to this foundation, uplifting and supporting the many more women in technology who are sure to succeed me." - Aranique is simultaneously pursuing a Bachelors and Masters degree in Information Systems and Operations Management with a focus in Data Science at the University of Florida.
"The ITWomen Foundation Scholarship has served as a mentor in my life, a motivator in times of need, a huge supporter every step of the way, and a way for me to make it through college. My dedication to opportunities and technology would not have been the same, and who I am today, will not have been the same."

Before attending an ITWomen Summer Robotics and Coding Camp taught by an ITWomen scholarship recipient, I wasn't sure what I might like to study after high school. As a result of attending the summer camp, I am now pursuing a degree in Computer Science at the University of Central Florida and am a proud 2018 ITWomen scholarship recipient!
