We all know that technology has benefited society in many ways, perhaps most notably in the areas of education and communication.
It has also modernized entertainment, political engagement and productivity. Technology is just woven into everything.
Don’t you love when you meet young women who like getting their hands dirty, connecting those wires and navigating the technology path? I know I do.
Wala Ahmed El-Fadul Mohammed is one of these women. She graduated in 2016 with a Bachelors in Management of Information Systems from Ahfad University.
She is currently preparing to pursue a Masters degree in Information technology next year. She is also a YALI RLC 2017 alumna.
Wala is currently working as the I.T service engineer with the MTN group in Khartoum, Sudan.
This fearless leader is also passionate about eradicating FGM and has been a part of focus groups directed at ending this menace.
She started sexual harassment focus groups that also involved street segments and has directly reached 35 girls.
They say that women are good at multitasking. [Laughs] Well, i guess this is nothing but the truth. I have seen it with my family and friends.
I also adore fashion and looking good. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you conquer your world.
My fashion design business has 5,000 stable customers who we transact with on social media.
I fell in love with the diverse Kenyan cultural dresses and I am looking at importing them for my Sudanese fashionistas.
It’s been one year since college and I always tell my fellow young African leaders and especially the women to invest more in their communities.
Age is not a limit. You can do whatever you set your mind to. Focus on solutions and creating impact.
My vision is to start an I.T consultation Company in Sudan in the next few years. The details are actually in my head and in my planner. I could tell you, but you never share too much. [Laughter]
