Earlier last year on November, 2015 I participated in the Europe, Middle East and Africa Women TechMakers competition. Honestly, I never wanted to participate but then my good friend convinced me to, so I decided to participate. So the requirement for participation was to fill an online form, submit your school transcripts , get referees to write good things about you and the most difficult part was writing 4 essays on different topics which were outlined.

So I did all this and submitted my application.

On February, 2017 I got an email from Google informing me that I had passed the first part of the application and I had to do an interview via Hangouts – which I did too. Then at the end of that week I received another email saying that I was among one of the winners from the 3 continents.

The program comes with 3 things/benefits: a scholarship, a retreat to a selected google office and an opportunity to join the Women TechMakers community. For more information about the scholarship visit this site:
