Kαι όμως η Μαρίλυ… είναι δικό μας παιδί…της Λεοντείου.
“…I did not ‘formally’ get into computer science until I was 22 and what I now find funny is that I thought it was ‘too late’ at the time…”
Dr. Marily Nika works for Google in California, and in 2011 she became the first Greek woman, as well as the first Imperial College London student to receive Google’s Anita Borg Scholarship, awarded to encourage women who excel in computer science. After receiving this scholarship, Marily then became an active role model and leader in the women in tech community, having given three TEDx talks. She was awarded the Imperial College gold medal for outstanding achievement as an ambassador for women in technology globally, and she received the WISE Influence award in 2015, as well as being named Woman of the Year by the FDM Group in London in 2018.
