Hi, I am Diana Lefter, a creative information technology expert, agile certified, working on freelance consulting projects for the public and private sector, sharing my time between Toronto, Iasi and Bruxelles.
Since 2019, I am dedicating time to a beautiful educational project – I have founded agileroo , a computer science and entrepreneurship school for kids and teens. 300 kids graduated the school’s classes, some of them are now mentors in our school, others are completing degrees in computer science at some of the most prestigious universities in Europe.
I am an advocate for digital education for all and, during my career, I have always been a tutor, mentor or a trainer, in addition to my various management roles. I am an advocate for girls in STEM – we need more girls to embrace careers in engineering and computer science, where creativity can flourish, despite the common belief that this is a very pragmatic domain.
agileroo is also a growing community, and being part of it is valuable at many levels: children are connected with peers and mentors, they gain new friends and are inspired to create projects where they can an express themselves with the means of technology. Parents learn to understand their kids digital world and sometimes they get involved in project themselves. Here is an example of a great hackathon we have organized just before Covid era started – here is a little film presenting the event: Kids Hackathon 2019 Iași, Romania
If you woudl like to be part of agileroo’s community, as a mentor, as a parent, as studen – please contact me here and I get help you participate.
