    Build a World where I am seen as the next big tech idea when I walk in the room.

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Shireen has been programming since she was 10 but even today people find it hard to believe. She wants a different world for her daughters. "They should be able to walk in a room full of tech professionals," Shireen said, "and NOT be asked if she knows if she is in the "RIGHT" room. SHE should be ushered in!!"
    - marcelacnn, CNN iReport producer

    I've been programming since I was ten. Most people won't believe that in today's time. That means I've been programming for 30 years and I grew up in the projects of NYC. My appearance makes most people pause and question it. I want the world to be different for my daughters. They should be able to walk in a room full of tech professionals and NOT be asked if she knows if she is in the "RIGHT" room. SHE should be ushered in!!
