#CNNHeroes : SHARON FROM PEARL AFRICA FOUNDATION INSPIRED MAKOKO FRESH

A difficult childhood forced Abisoye Ajayi-Akinfolarin to become self-reliant, and she eventually built a successful career in IT. Troubled by how few women work in her field, she decided to show young women how technology can empower them.
