Q3: Give us a professional instance during your training that remains a landmark in your career profession

Khadijat: Miss Miriam, who came from WAAW Foundation, taught us about the creation of solar panels that made an impact tand has remained a landmark for me. I plan to learn more about solar panels and as well be able to build solar panels to help aid the provision of electricity in Nigeria.

Q4: Outline your take on the future of women technology in Africa

Khadijat: In the next five years, I see a lot of women in technology in Africa and making life easier for people.
