I’m always interested in the back stories of the people I speak with in FinTech. What drives them, how did they get into the industry, who motivates them, etc.? I walked away from my interview with Fereshteh reflecting on my own focus and my actions in making the world a better place. She is the real deal – every part of her story is inspiring and I’m thrilled to include her and her project Code To Inspire as part of this series. Her work to empower Afgani women through learning to code is a real solution to a real social and economic challenge. Listen and be inspired.
