MOHAMMED LOGUMA Shafa’atu Age 14
Question 1: Give a general experience with Miss.Africa sponsored AboCoders training and how your digital skills were enhanced
Loguma: Before I came to AboCoders, I knew absolutely nothing about computers but now after my training, I can type, do a bit of HTML and CSS and I am aware of a lot of things the computer can be used to do. I can use it on my own to send emails to friends far and near.
Question 2: How did the Miss.Africa sponsored AboCoders training enhance your perceptions of the involvement of women in technology
Loguma: My training period at AboCoders has exposed me to the involvement of women in technology and I see it as a sign of development and hope for the future.
Question 3: Give us a professional instance during your training that remains a landmark in your career profession
Loguma: For the first time ever, I was able to log in to the Internet (guided by one of our trainers), navigated through the web pages and got to experience something that I had never experienced before. I was very excited and I realized I could do a lot of things with just a few clicks.
Question 4: Outline your take on the future of women technology in Africa
Loguma: I think in the future, there will be more women in technology in Africa and they will be able to make significant changes in our society. They will also be able to help their fellow women and empower them thereby eradicating poverty.
