March 29, 2023

On this week’s show, Kamz is joined by Gigi (Gianina Skarlett), proud Venezuelan founder, CEO and lead engineer of W3 Learn Academy and Crypto Tech Women, a Web3 community-centric brand that has empowered 20,000+ community members worldwide to take space in Web3. She’s passionate about education, innovation and the Web3 industry. She was a software engineer at an AI Silicon Valley company before joining the Web3 industry.

Her mission is to continue to grow and lead the vision of Crypto Tech Women while ensuring the right culture is nurtured within the community. Having the right culture is her top priority, one that is inclusive, where everyone feels supported, encouraged, listened to and cared for. Building longevity for Crypto Tech Women is her main goal.

On this incredible show, we discuss:

👓 W3 Learn Academy and how women can be involved in the Web3 space with tech or non-tech backgrounds

💻 the coding skills and soft skills needed to stand out for jobs and projects
