Diagnosed at the age of one with cerebral palsy (CP), a neurological disorder effecting coordination and muscle movement, software engineer Farida Bedwei hasn’t let the disorder get in the way of her success.
When she was 15 years old, a computer course sparked Bedwei’s interest in information technology. From there, she landed a dream job at a premier software company before going on to earn a degree in computer science. Bedwei then started a job in the IT department of G-Life Financial Services where she and a colleague started building a new cloud software platform that is now used by 130 micro-finance companies. In 2013 Bedwei, who is co-founder and chief technical officer of the software company Logiciel, was named by South Africa’s CEO Magazine as the most influential woman in business and government in Africa for the financial sector.
Bedwei prides herself on inspiring others with disabilities, saying “I am a role model for a lot of children with disabilities so and it’s very important for me to showcase to the world that… Yes … You can have a disabled child and it’s not the end of the world. There is so much that that child can end up doing given the right resources.”
