Today I received my PhD and a medal for outstanding achievement. I cried when the medal was presented to me on stage, and that's because nothing would have happened if it wasn't for the people that have been supporting and loving me these years.
And this is the video from the ceremony.
My TEDx topic was picked up by a Greek Newspaper, it's talking about how women in CS can achieve anything they wish!
The Telegraph published my story towards Computer Science, you might find it interesting!
"Is Computer Science for you? 7 tips & advice you should read "
I developed the programming course curriculum for the first pilot tech clubs that will run in London schools this winter. The goal was to find the coolest ways to teach coding (i.e. Sphero, Kodu) and inspire the young generation of girls to pursue a career in tech.

"This is me leaning in. Writing this book is what I would do if I weren't afraid"
