In her own words:
My name is Julie Sundar and I am chairwoman of Codettes Foundation.
I am an operational manager, curriculum developer and trainer.
I am 26 years old, born on December 8 1994 in Georgetown Guyana but raised in Paramaribo Suriname.
My passion has always been about women empowerment, because I came out of poverty and I have had first hand experience on how hard it was for women to have a fair chance in the ICT world.
My motto has always been if I was able to do it so can you!
I believe that the only way to have meaning in life is to give back and help others.
Always be on the lookout for opportunities because if you are not constantly on the lookout you might miss the open doors.
