On Friday, July 28th, I went live with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg to share updates on my Teen Community projects, my vision for enhancing representation of Black folks in the media, and ideas on how to inspire more women to enter the tech industry! We were also featured on Blavity!
Nicole & I had so much fun – Our Facebook Live has been viewed by at least 90,000 people!
Best way to kick off the weekend? Going Live on Facebook with 2 of our inspiring interns. @nicolerasquinha is a software engineer on @messenger and @joyofodu is on @instagram's teen community team. We talked about the great projects they’re working on, plans for the future, and getting more women into tech 💪. Check out my Facebook page for more!
Step 3: Reflect on an AMAZING moment in which I got to share my life goals, projects @instagram and personal story with @sherylsandberg and a @facebook audience of 81,000 people. Thank you FB team for creating this opportunity for me and @nicolerasquinha – my website, LinkedIn, email & FB are all blowing up with love! Can't think of a better way to start rounding out my first summer here.
After the live, I got love from all over the world: Nigerians, high school students, family and friends, other women in Technology/Communications, and of course, proud Trojans! It was amazing! Thank you Facebook for the opportunity, and an amazing summer!
