Aghama’s Tech and Web3 Career Story | Women's Day Special

Aghama was a librarian at a university. She then turned herself into a technical staff at that university, started MumsWhoCode for mothers in tech, and recently graduated from our first-ever web3 bootcamp in Nigeria 🎉

What a journey! 😲

In celebration of International Women's Day, we're honored to share her inspiring story!

How Aghama’s career started  

Aghama studied computer science at college. When graduated, she started as an administrative intern as a Youth Corper after which she proceeded to work as an electronic librarian, helping students have access to electronic copies of books without necessarily visiting the physical library. After working in this role for eight years, she started to pursue her passion for tech. Of course it wasn’t easy, but her dedication paid off in the end. She now works as a principal technical staff at the very same university 🙂

It was during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic that Aghama's true power showed up. Recognizing the need to support mothers seeking to enter the tech industry, she founded MumsWhoCode.

The organization offers a diverse array of programs and opportunities tailored for women in tech. With over 3200 women enrolled and a network of 320+ alumni, spanning across 6 completed cohorts, MumsWhoCode provides a supportive environment for women of all backgrounds and skill levels. What started as a simple tweet blossomed into a thriving ecosystem where women from all walks of life come together to learn, grow, and support each other!

Her self learning journey also took a significant turn when she joined Rise In's Transition to Web3 Bootcamp in Nigeria. Graduating successfully, she not only gained valuable insights into web3 but also connected with like-minded individuals passionate about leveraging technology for positive change.
