“The ambassador program not only gave me a chance to make change but also to make lifelong friendships. Through the program and the coding clubs we created, I was able to meet so many likeminded girls from all across Canada, and our passion for chance wasn’t the only thing we all had in common. Throughout my time as an ambassador, I’ve gotten to learn a tremendous amount of knowledge from all the other ambassadors and make some amazing friends as well, which has led to an amazing sense of community within the program” 

 

Samia H, Third Year Ambassador

“I feel empowered in many ways in my role as a Hackergal Ambassador. Most importantly, I feel empowered by being supported by the community of like-minded girls in the ambassador program, that allows me to feel like I belong in the tech industry. This empowers me to pursue computer science and STEM courses in the future.” 

 

Bhavani P,  Second Year Ambassador

“Within the Ambassador program, I feel as though I am wholly supported. I am quite introverted and this nature still rings through today, yet I feel comfortable in joining meetings and touchpoint groups. While I have not talked to all of my fellow Ambassadors, I know that they are all kind and open to conversation, which I truly appreciate. I see and hear how welcoming everyone is and how they are willing to offer feedback and guidance when others ask. I view us Ambassadors as sort of a family, in a way, within Hackergal!”
