60 Seconds With GirlHype Founder and Tech CEO Baratang Miya

Watch Baratang Miya, founder, CEO and mentor at Girlhype Coders, share how she teaches girls and women to code. She explains why they should consider careers in Information, Communication, Technology (ICT), and STEM. Miya says that girls should consider careers in the tech world because there's a lack of women's voices in those fields. At Girlhype, she finds funding and partners for the organization, including human resources managers who help students find jobs when they finish training. The most rewarding part of her job, she says, is seeing girls and women who grew up in shacks complete their Girlhype training, get jobs and move into the middle class. She advises young girls to focus, saying that as a girl she spent all her time reading and dreaming about where she wanted to be in the future.
