Meet the awesome people behind our outreach activities.

Director

I joined CybHER because I believe in its mission. Young girls need encouragement and motivation to pursue cybersecurity and outreach activities help accomplish this mission. If I can provide motivation and encouragement to at least one student and they pursue cybersecurity, I will have achieved CybHER’s mission.

I joined CybHER so that young girls can learn and get excited about all the different opportunities in cybersecurity and know that cybersecurity needs people from all backgrounds.

CybHER Leader

I joined CybHER because when I was in middle school, I went to some of their camps, and it helped show me and other young girls some of the job opportunities most people don’t even think about. I joined to help show that there are more jobs in STEM than just the common programmer or engineer.

With the increasing demand for cybersecurity, the importance of awareness and education increases. I joined CybHER to impact others, help fix the rapidly increasing demand, and change the way people view and handle security, for their protection and safety, and for the benefit of everyone.

I joined CybHER because of my desire to help others. CybHER’s mission is to empower, motivate, educate, and change the perception of girls and women in cybersecurity, and CybHER is devoted to helping girls to engage in the Cybersecurity industry. So, when the chance to join CybHER came, for me, it was a chance I didn’t want to miss. I want to help girls by committing myself to CybHER’s mission.

I am excited to be part of CybHER because it reminds me of my younger cousin. I am from Ethiopia, where the accessibility of advanced computers and cybersecurity knowledge is limited. However, despite being in a place where higher tech was capped at Microsoft Office, my cousin was committed enough to teach herself as much as she can about programming, hacking, and the science of computers in general. In fact, she was the person that got me into the binary universe. Due to her influence, I wanted to do my part in providing opportunities for young women like my cousin. There isn’t a better way than joining CybHER, whose mission is to encourage young women to develop an interest in technology.

I joined CybHER to make connections with the community and surrounding communities. Going to Outreach events and empowering young women to follow their dreams is an important goal to which I am happy to contribute. I was excited to join and create designs for CybHER as they are an organization that I feel strongly about. Women breaking the mold by entering jobs mainly dominated by men are the future.
