The impact tour with TechWomen | Britney B. Moukoko

Updated: Feb 29

I was privileged to be invited to join the TechWomen Delegation from the USA, alongside TechWomen Cameroon Fellows in a two-day impact tour in which I represented the TechGirls.

Here we are at Tassah Academy Complex watching some artistic presentations from the students


It was a pleasure to meet and connect with TechWomen professional mentors like Katy Dickinson, Seena Shankar and Shawne Van Deusen-Jeffries, amongst others, and drink from their profound wells of wisdom.

 

The impact tour started with the Technovation Challenge at Tassah Academy Complex, which brought together hundreds of tech-savvy students from different schools. It featured pitching sessions and engineering workshops. I had discussions with some female students, and I was thrilled by the innovations birthed by young people to solve pressing issues in our nation, Cameroon. I also had the opportunity to give final remarks and a TechGirls talk to wrap up this epoch-making event.


Next, we headed for the Leadership Development and Sustainable Impact Network event at Hilton, where women entrepreneurs from all walks of life sat under the shade of wisdom provided by female trailblazers. This event provided me with empowerment, answered many heartfelt questions I had, and gave me room to create lifelong networks.


I had the honor of having a brief chat with the CEO of CAMTEL, Mrs. Judith Yah Sunday Achidi, with astounding results.

Finally, we were at the Mountain Hub for a workshop on design thinking and waste management. Here, I worked in a group with professionals in the field, and together we brainstormed and brought about practical solutions to enhance the waste collection process in a bid to minimize waste pollution in our nation.

 

Now I know to never feel bad about being the only lady in the room because there are many rooms with ladies, and we will meet when we step out of our respective rooms.

My special gratitude goes to the TechWomen Delegation, TechWomen Cameroon, and my mentor, Mrs. Germaine Ashu, for this magnificent opportunity.
