How to Create Your Own Success: a photo journal by Sally Ahmed Mosad

Location: Mansoura, Egypt

The first GWITA Forum was held on September 29, 2012 in Mansoura, Egypt. The goal of this gathering was to use technology to help women realize their potential as leaders, entrepreneurs and individuals.

The speakers in this series include women from various backgrounds. Sally Ahmed Mosad spoke in general about problems that face women in the field of technology. She said that every woman in our country wants to be useful to her community and country, but often find troubles. One of these troubles is that the field of technology is rapidly developing. Women must be well-informed and study hard. At the same time, they have to care fort their children and her home. At times, women need to travel outside their city to attend conferences or utilize educational opportunities.

Our event covered how we must face these hardships and conquer them.

Speakers in the first half of our seminars included Eman Riffat, Shaymaa Mostafa, and Samar Ali. The central themes of our discussions talked about how you must get up whenever you fall. They talked about how women face challenges still can reach their goals. These speeches introduced a challenge for girls to improve themselves. Nothing is impossible.

This was also an opportunity for women to share their personal stories, like what they decided to do after graduation. Some spoke about the women in technology space and experiment they have done with Microsoft and cloud computing. Work like this has reached thousands of women around the world.

The second half of speakers included Zahraa Mohamed, Shimaa Adel- Shimaa, Noha El-guindy, and Hend El-Masry-Hend who also spoke about careers and specifically how they were able to better themselves and still tend to the home.

Noha El-guindy spoke to women who are already married but still want to make something useful for other women in the community. She talked about opportunities the work from home as a blogger and her own blog "om KOKO." Hend El-Masry-spoke about how she was also able to work from home while studying in the faculty of engineering.

After these sessions, we thank all thanked attendants, speakers and volunteers. We look forward to hosting another GWITA session in the future.
