Jemima, the software engineer

A software developer busier than ever finding work on freelance platforms | Accra, Ghana

"I see COVID-19 trying to change the world into the digital system."

Before the pandemic, Jemima had a strong network of clients in Accra. When COVID-19 hit and Ghana’s economy slowed down, many of these businesses closed. She turned to online freelancing platforms, including Upwork and Fiverr, to earn a living and is now busier than ever. Though solemn about the human impact of the pandemic, Jemima is excited by how the need for social distancing has accelerated the world’s shift to digital. “I see technology as spearheading the world of change,” she says. “COVID is like a catalyst in our field.”
