Kirsty Selesho

Software engineering student at WeThinkCode_

Kirsty Selesho is a 22 year-old software engineering student at WeThinkCode_ in Johannesburg. She grew up in an informal settlement, where she was raised by a single mother. Kirsty’s dream was to become a doctor but this changed when she got introduced to Computer Technology in Grade 10. She then told herself that one day she would become one of the top female game developers in the world. The motto that has kept her going since childhood is: «Life’s a journey and we will always come across obstacles, rich or poor. When this happens, it does not mean one should stop dreaming. You can do anything anyone else can do, only you can do it better.»
