The Senegalese Female Tech Scene- What It Looks Like?
When Binta Coudy De first voyaged out of Senegal, it was sometime in 2011. She was 22 years old and a computer engineer who was invited to take part in a tech competition that was put together by Microsoft in New York. In the worldwide sea of groups that competed at the event, Binta’s team was the only one entirely comprising females. Binta knew they were the only women tech team in Senegal, but it was surprising for her to realize that they were the only all-women group to appear in an international tech event. The Americans were more than happy to see black girls competing, so everybody wanted to talk and get to know them.
