#Top15YoungGeeks - Meet Hlulani Baloyi

Hlulani Baloyi is a Digital analyst(Full stack developer),working for a consulting firm. She graduated from the Tshwane University of Technology in 2014 with a Diploma in Information and Communication Technology (majoring on Technical applications).

Joined Geekulcha and soon realized that there is a gap between males and females in the ICT sector. She started doing research and came across Girl Rising.

She is now the ambassador for this global initiative and helps teach women how to code and helps tackle the gender gap. In 2014 she became an Intel Ambassador for their #SheWillConnect initiative which is designed to help women allover becoming computer literate.

Under the same umbrella she then co-founded an women in Tech organization called Raeketsetsa(we are doing it ourselves) which focuses on sustaining young women who are already in the tech-space.

If your mind is in it, you can achieve it.

Dear South African Geeks: We have the right kinds of solutions to revolutionalize and transform the tech narrative in our country, may we dare to fearlessly do it like "Pro's" acknowledging that we are part of a bigger picture and our piece in the puzzle matters.
