Alumna Mujde Esin founded her social entreprise KizCode in 2016, aiming to teach young girls between 7 and 15 years old from underprivileged backgrounds and migrant communities, maths and technology through workshops and activities such as computer programming, coding and creative use of digital technology sessions.
KizCode’s goal is to integrate migrants through digital technology education in order to assist women’s social and employment integration. Mujde’s enterprise has been mainly operating in Turkey and England, reaching 250 girls since its establishment.
Talking about her experience studying at Westminster, Mujde said: “Studying at the University of Westminster made me aware of critical theory. In addition, I was fortunate to meet an amazingly diverse group of students at the University to collaborate with and learn from each other.”
Mujde has recently won Microsoft’s Women Leaders of Technology award as the most successful Woman Educator of the Year and her firm KizCode as the best Social Entrepreneurship of the Year.
