TECHdotMN TV: Women in Computing | Ananya Mishra

by The TECHdotMN Team


In January, Advance IT Minnesota announced the winners of the first ever statewide Minnesota Aspirations for Women in Computing Award.

Six winners and five runners-up from across the state were selected based on their interests, accomplishments, and community involvement in computing and technology, as well as for their aspirations in computing and technology-related fields.

We recently attended a recognition and awards ceremony at Unisys and spoke with winner Ananya Mishra, a Junior at Wayzata High School, who says that “This award proves that I can succeed in technology…and I will continue to do that. My ultimate dream is to be a video game programmer.” Following her interview is a brief conversation with Heidi Christopherson and Niki Anderson from Securian, discussing their careers in technology.

Special thanks to Maverick Software Consulting for sponsoring this interview and supporting Ananya’s accomplishment!
