  2. "It was beautiful to see a united team, creating empathy,

    supporting career growth, helping black people, talking about the job market in IT, which in my mind would be impossible for black people."
  3. "AfroPython helped me learn new things, to realise that there

    are more possibilities and made me feel welcome."
  4. "AfroPython have impacted me in the most positive and beautiful

    way possible. I couldn't imagine that a 1 day computer programming class, would create such a network of people willing to help and support each other as in AfroPython."
