My ideal mentee: This story is about Mithila who found a new purpose of life in Women in digital. But she was not like this a few years ago. She was a person dipped in depression and a very shy person with lack of technical knowledge. She had no career plan and no aim in her life. One morning she came in “Women in digital” with her mother and her journey of learning began.Women in Digital guided her properly and she learnt graphic designing and leadership communication from an Android mentor which was provided by Women in Digital. Despite of not being a coder she learnt very well from her mentor. For her future Women in Digital took an initiative named 9TO999 which is an e-commerce platform with an aim to create social impact. All the products created by the employees of 9TO999 will be sold in 9 to 999 taka limit. And the sales automatically get donated to burn or acid survivors. After learning these, the story of Mithila changed.

Starting from zero with the help of Women in digital, now she’s a representative of Women in digital in different districts. Now she has her own identity. She’s a businesswoman and obviously she’s a tech woman proudly. Now she’s ready to help other girls who are interested about Tech career. And this is the way we grow our community.
