African Community Awards. AFRONEWS AWARDS 2023. Joy Wendo has been nominated for the Best African Female Software Engineer in Germany at the AFRONEWS Awards 2023.

Who is Joy Wendo

Joy is a Kenyan musician, Software Engineer and mother living and working in Germany. She is currently working as a Software Engineer. She is also the founding member of Harambee Live, an Afro-fusion band based in Osnabrück.

Joy Wendo takes pride in her job as a Software Engineer. She once told AFRONEWS that the reason she does this is to encourage women to pursue their dreams and ambitions and that they can do anything they put their mind to.

“I want to encourage other mothers that nothing is impossible if you focus and let nothing distract you. I want to change the narrative that women belong in the Kitchen and men in the office.”

What does a software engineer do? Software engineering is the branch of computer science that deals with the design, development, testing, and maintenance of software applications. Software engineers apply engineering principles and knowledge of programming languages to build software solutions for end users.
