Meet WTM Ambassador Ngọc Võ

Ngoc is a Software Engineer at VNG Corporation, who has been working with mobile development for over 3 years using Android programming and Flutter.

When asked what she wished every woman who is interested in getting into tech industry knew, she said:

"Don't let the fears of "Engineering is not for women" make you doubt yourself. Enjoy what you are doing and keep moving forward. If you fall, stand up with the valuable experience. It's always better than just standing still and doing nothing. It can be a hard road at first, but you can eventually make a great journey with your passion!"
