I believe the future of Africa lies in technology, which is why it’s more important than ever for there to be strong women tech leaders. Being a role model for girls who aspire to have careers in tech makes my world go round.

When he’s not coding, Leke is “reminding humanity of humanity” through photography.
Some people perceive technology to be an obstacle in the way of being human, but I think of it more as a source of expression. I’m passionate about using tech to connect humanity on a level that we wouldn’t be able to connect on otherwise.
Andela developers are looking for an actual solution. They take our feedback and then actually challenge the status quo. I think that’s what has worked for us.
The great thing about Andela developers is they're as energized and as motivated as anybody else on our team. These guys are hungry, creative, aggressive—the kinds of things you would expect from a Silicon Valley engineer.
We see Andela as an opportunity to bring someone in without any bad habits -- someone we can develop, invest in, and count on as a long-term member of our team. They have a hunger and a thirst to learn that is stronger than you’ll usually find.
From a developer standpoint, they’re extremely talented and hungry across the board. They want to prove that there is good talent in Africa and that they’re here for a reason. They’ve brought a lot of energy and excitement to the team.

I have come to realize that if you have a strong passion for what you do, you will find a capacity within you to find a solution even in the most challenging of situations. Find your passion and work hard and diligently at it.
