My name is Tania, and as the network developer, I face two major challenges when it comes to finding work. Firstly, as a woman of color, I often feel anxious when applying to jobs or attending interviews. Even my name, Tania Nana, can be a barrier in itself, making it harder to get my foot in the door.
I worry that I might be discriminated against based on my gender or race, and that my potential for motherhood and taking maternity leave might be seen as a disadvantage. While I understand that the Black Lives Matter movement has created opportunities for marginalized groups, I believe that employers should hire people based on their skills and what they can bring to the table, rather than just ticking boxes for diversity. It's important to focus on a person's abilities and not discriminate based on how they look.
