Enthusiasm is What Keeps Innovation Alive

A Story of Adisti Anjani Putri, Bangkit 2022 Graduate from Electrical Engineering, Universitas Udayana "Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another. We’re strongest when we cheer each other on.” Melinda Gates Melinda’s statement above implies that women are capable of achieving their dreams and being an inspiration to others. They have the potential to succeed in any field, from science to technology. Regarding women’s involvement in technology, unfortunately, the gap is still substantial—only 26.7% of women hold tech-related jobs. Similarly, technology firms with over 10.000 employees report women’s representation at just 26.2% (Statista, 2021). This wall is what Adisti Anjani Putri (22) tried to leap over. Being a woman didn’t stop her from shining in Bangkit. Apart from being a distinguished graduate, she and her capstone team also created Fishku, one of the Top 15 Product-Based Capstone Projects in Bangkit 2022, and deserved incubation funds from Google and Dikti
