Ludymila Lobo de Aguiar Gomes lives in Manaus, Brazil. She is a Women Techmakers Ambassador who believes in the power of women’s voices in her community. For the past couple of years, she has been working hard to cultivate spaces for women in tech to further their careers. “We need to have more women speakers and more women participating in and winning competitions and hackathons,” Ludymila says. “If you don’t have role models, then when women are deciding their careers they’ll have less of a chance to look at inspiring stories and say, ‘Hey, I can do this too.’”
