In this episode, Soumow sits down and chat with Melissa Sassi, CEO & Founder of MentorNations, a community of volunteers who believe digital literacy is a human right. Melissa also works at Microsoft and is a Phd student. She is a proof that even if you did not study CS, you can still work in the IT world and contribute to it in your own way and using your own tools.
