Ines Simbi, from Kigali, Rwanda, is a junior at Bennington College, where she double majors in computer science and international relations. In 2018, Ines interned at AnnieCannons, a nonprofit that helps women who are survivors of human trafficking by training them in coding and other in-demand technology skills. She was a project manager for app development and her experience helped her realize she’d like to use her computer science skills to advocate for women who aren’t represented or whose voices aren’t heard. On campus, she became an orientation leader for both international and domestic incoming students in 2017. She previously interned with WorldWideWomen where she compiled and sorted organization data and designed and created web pages. She also volunteered at a hospital called C.H.U.K where she served food to the patients. Before she joined SHE-CAN and came to the U.S., Ines graduated from Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology in Rwanda. At Gashora, she worked with peers to create a school library application - working in a small team, she conducted research on stakeholders and developed code for the program. Additionally, she volunteered as an English tutor, led the Home Economics Club, and developed and executed a project to raise money for health insurance for sick and poor children in her church. She intends to return to Rwanda and create her own software company to develop mobile phone applications that will help reduce unemployment in Rwanda.
