"There aren’t enough words to express how grateful I am to be a recipient of the ITWomen sholarship. This scholarship has not only opened many doors for me, but has provided me with an incredible, reliable support system of strong, intelligent women. I feel as if I have truly gained an invaluable network of people who have supported me in every aspect of my educational endeavors and career. 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."
