Originally from South East Asia, Tanja was programming before she was 10 and built her first Lego robots when she was 11. On moving to Switzerland, she secured an IT apprenticeship as one of just three women in a cohort of 120. As a mixed-race woman, Tanja has experienced both racism and sexism throughout her 16-year technical career, but she hasn’t let that stop her.

She now leads the Business Systems Software Development team at Leeds Beckett University, helping her staff deliver IT projects using an Oracle, web and Microsoft tech stack.
