Ada Lovelace: a mathematician who is considered to be the first computer programmer due to her work on the Analytical Engine made by Charles Babbage. At the time, math and science focused subjects were not widely studied by women. Ada was credited with the creation of the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a computer. Ada also theorised a method for the analytical engine to repeat instructions, which we know today as looping. This is just some of the work of Ada Lovelace.
Alaina Percival, Kimberly Bryant and Alice Bentinck : have all founded non-profit tech organisations, Woman Who Code, Black Girls Code and Code First Girls, dedicated to helping and inspiring girls to excel in technology careers, providing them with the support and resources needed to do so.
Grace Beverly : she started out as a fitness ‘influencer’. I find her so inspiring because she has built 2 multi-million pound businesses by the age of 24. She shares both the good and bad situations she faces as a female business owner on her social media pages.
My amazing friends outside of work, all inspire me, their roles include – a branch manager, a nurse, a trainee solicitor, a very successful hair-stylist and an intelligence officer. This picture on the right is of me and my best friend in Thailand.
