This 22-year-old software engineer is empowering women and young girls to pursue their dreams in tech.
Miss Silicon Valley USA 2022 has finally been named – and it is software developer and tech Youtuber Jasmine Wu. The 22-year-old graduated with a degree in Business and Computer Science at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, making her the first woman in the family to earn a bachelor’s degree and work in the tech industry.
As a woman in tech, Jasmine encourages young girls and women to learn technical skills and level up their lives and careers. Although Silicon Valley and the tech industry can be competitive, challenging and aggressive at times, Jasmine believes that femininity still has a place in tech and should be celebrated instead of hidden. Through her YouTube channel TechGalDiaries, she shares her journey in technology, education, and self-development. She wants other women and girls to know that they can achieve anything with the right mindset, perseverance, and hard work.
Apart from being a Tech Youtuber, Jasmine also worked as a technology intern at Best Buy and Nordstrom. Today, she is working as a full-time software engineer and loves building applications and tools that will help other people.
She sees challenges as opportunities to grow and credits her Christian faith to what she has accomplished so far. It has been a long time dream for her to be where she is now; through all the ups and downs of life, her faith and values gave her the strength she needed to stay true to herself while pursuing her goals.
As Miss Silicon Valley USA 2022, Jasmine plans to use her platform to continue to grow the advocacy of TechGalDiaries – inspiring others, especially women, to go after their dreams in tech.
