Sabrina! I'm a Colombian software developer as well, and seeing that you are too made me so happy! And my experience isn't far from yours... I didn't start in a Software engineering major as my first option in a university in Colombia, and when I decided to change majors it wasn't on the list of options either... But when I finally decided to start Software Engineering as a major, 2 of my closest male friends (at separate moments) told me it was great I chose this career because I could ask my male classmates to do the work for me and they wouldn't be able to refuse... I felt sick, why wouldn't I be able to do that myself? Fast forward to now and I've graduated and I've had 2 formal job in which, the first one didn't have women in the tech team, I was the PO, and in the current work I have I'm the ONLY woman out of 9 devs. SO thanks for sharing, it was very relatable.
