On November 13-14, Sofiya Chobanyan, a Bachelor's student in Applied Mathematics and Informatics at Russian-Armenian University participated in the Perspektywy Women in Tech 2019 summit. She was one of the two winners of GIRLS GO ENGINEERING! student challenge initiated by Synopsys Armenia and Girls in Tech Armenia. To win the chance to attend the conference, students had to pass an application process, which included a written test and an interview.
Sofiya had a chance to participate in the Perspektywy Women in Tech 2019 two-day summit in Warsaw, Poland, which focused on the future of technology and the power of women in tech. Here is what she had to say about the event, "It was a great pleasure to be a part of such an outstanding conference. It was really motivating to see how women from different walks of life succeed in their fields. Knowing that most of them had humble and somewhat perplexed career beginnings motivated me to pursue my dreams. Additionally, it was very informative to participate in different workshops by tech companies and learn a thing or two about their current problems and potential solutions."
