Bio: Freshta Sadat
I graduated from Computer Science (Software Engineering) faculty of Kabul University.
I am determined individual who strived to become a successful professional software engineer, help other Afghan girls and women learn technology and remove barriers to girls/women working in the computer science field and technology sector. Since women have little opportunity at education and jobs in technology sector and thought to be unsuitable for this type of work. These challenges facing girls/women have made me work harder to achieve my goal and become an example to encourage other girls/women study computer science and break through the field.
I started my professional career as an application developer with a private company in Kabul, Afghanistan, then took a job with an international organization as a Database Officer and currently working as Project Data Manager and I have membership of many national and international organizations too.
I am passionate about technology, developing youth, peace, Human rights, developing and empowering young girls to pursue careers in ICT and about providing them with the skills to innovate the country’s tech industry.
It’s worth mentioning that I have received an appreciation award from the Afghan Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and was recognized as one of the 10 top talents who works in ICT sector in the country. Moreover, I was nominated by the us embassy to participate in Indo-Afghan tech camp on sustainable urbanization and development which was held on July 2019 in India:Mumbai .
