Hello, Ladies!!! Remember the Community hangout we had last Saturday? Well, here's the Recap. This is an opportunity to relive it if you attended or to be updated with what happened during the hangout if you didn't Big ups to our amazing hosts Gbemi and Temi who made us have a relaxing evening where we got to connect, unwind, interact, learn and ask questions. It was a fun and informative time As with everything in life, being a woman in STEM comes with its own challenges like internship saga. "How do I get a good place for my internship?", "Is this company a good fit for me?", "Can I do my internship virtually due to COVID 19?" etc are the questions we often ask ourselves All 18 community members who participated got the answers to this questions. Yes, internships can be done virtually! Amazing right? I didn't even know this UI UX was explained when a participant was confused about what it really is. UI UX has a lot to do with product design by creating user-friendly interface for these products If you're a member of Afro-Tech Girls community and you attended (or didn't attend) the hangout, but you're not yet on the telegram community, I strongly encourage you to join us as it's a safe space where questions about STEM are appreciated and answers provided Do you know that STEM isn't just about technology alone but has other aspects like science, engineering and mathematics? We need to remind ourselves of this because whenever STEM is mentioned, people automatically think it's all about technology alone Yvonne helped us understand this better as she shared a bit of her work experience in a STEM related field with us Overall, it was a very interesting time spent getting to know each other as a community and asking questions on things we weren't clear about See you at the next event, make sure to attend as I'm sure you wouldn't want to miss the value and relevant information you'd need to properly navigate your way as a woman in STEM
