Women in Tech Scholarship winner
June 14, 2022
We want to congratulate Brandie Huffman for winning the Women in Tech Full Ride Scholarship to V School!
"I am just getting back into work and school after being a stay at home mom for 8 years to 4 kids. I want to show my kids what hard work and determination can do. I want to make my kids proud and provide the life they deserve and that I deserve.
When I began looking for online schools for UX/UI I was referred to V School more than any other program. It has come highly recommended. The syllabus is very detailed and covers everything that I feel is important to learn. I plan to gain employment for a female owned company, and eventually be able to start my own company.
I love that Tech-Moms helps women break into the tech world and V School aligns with that model as well.
I plan on starting a nonprofit for women that have survived domestic violence or are trying to get out of it and are interested in tech work. I think it is such a great industry for women. I want to match women with programs that can help them through school."
We're thrilled to be a part of Brandie's journey into tech! Congratulations!
Women feel left out because they haven't been given the opportunity to pursue a career in technology, and they believe it isn't for them. Tech-Moms is a nonprofit organization that helps people transition into technology careers and find more successful employment.
