In her home country, math and computer science are regular school subjects for Nadja Bogdanova. But when she comes from Russia to Germany with her family at the age of 16, she realizes that she is much better than her classmates in these subjects. This changes her perspective of these subjects. “When I realized how good I was at it, I started to enjoy it more and more,” she says. She decides to study digital media. In the computer science courses, she notices that there are very few women in the department.
