Sihem AzibiSihem Azibi, Jr. Software Developer - Limo Link

Jr. Software Developer – Limo Link

Sihem Azibi attended DeltaV Code School for one reason — to change her life. She speaks Arabic and French, but didn't know any English before moving to the U.S. which made it hard to use her Algerian Computer Science degree. After completing DeltaV she earned a full-time position as Junior Software Developer at LimoLink. Sihem says, “I want to show people that wherever you come from, and whatever your background is, if you want to do something, you can do it.” (Video length: 8 min. 53 sec.)
