Nadah F

Software Engineer

There is so much power in positive mentorship. Seeing someone else that looks like you achieving amazing things can give you a vision of yourself succeeding as well and influence the way you think about yourself and your potential.

Since I joined Facebook, the opportunities that I have had to contribute to initiatives across the company has been incredible! Besides my involvement internally with ERG’s such as Muslim@, I was given the opportunity to support the work done throughout the month of Ramadan in building faith-based features. I worked cross-functionally with engineers, PMs, PPMs, and Strategic Partners on everything from external communications and content strategy to summarizing insights about the needs of the Muslim community. Being able to support others and give back to my community is very important to me. I never imagined that my work as a Software Engineer at Facebook could overlap with some of the causes that I am passionate about. 

I am excited to see what other opportunities I will have to bring positive change for my community and to continue to amplify the voices of those under-represented in this space. Despite the challenges and self-doubt I’ve faced in this field, I believe that my position at Facebook has given me a platform to have an impact on those around me. There is so much power in positive mentorship. Seeing someone else that looks like you achieving amazing things can give you a vision of yourself succeeding as well and influence the way you think about yourself and your potential. I don’t want what I’m doing to be considered “exceptional”, I want it to be the grounds to which other girls can see that “this person looks like me” and that this is just the starting point for what they can accomplish!
