Sakina Abbas becomes first Pakistani woman Google Developers Expert for Flutter
A proud moment for the nation as Sakina Abbas has become Pakistan’s first woman Google Developers Expert for Flutter.
The 25-year-old hails from Karachi as is one of the few women who broke free from the shackles of a conservative society. Considering in Pakistan a minute percentage of women get a chance to attain higher education, Sakina is a stereotype breaker as she studied computer sciences at a private university and graduating with a degree in the discipline in 2019.
"To be honest, it was neither an "aha!" moment, nor did I have it planned from the very start that I will be pursuing a career in tech," said Abbas, who is Pakistan’s first female Google Developers Experts for Flutter.
A year ago, I used to follow fellow developers in an attempt to learn sth new.
Today, I'm excited to announce that I'm a @GoogleDevExpert for Flutter, & the first female GDE for Flutter in Pakistan! ????????
Thank you to everyone who has supported me; many exciting things to come! pic.twitter.com/czBYAIRltL— Sakina Abbas (@sakin8tor) April 21, 2021
