Nanbaan Micah is a 19year old girl who lives in Kaduna and is in her second year at the Nigeria Airforce University where she is studying cybersecurity. Prior to gaining admission in the Academy, Nanbaan was inspired to begin a career in cybersecurity and reached out to Cybersafe Foundation. We made an exception for her, provided her training and mentorship for a duration of 10 months.
Shortly after, Nanbaan put her new hard and soft skills to use and soon landed herself a part-time role at a cybersecurity company based in Atlanta. She has been working at this company for close to 1 year while in school.
Nanbaan is proof that girls can start early and build a successful career in cybersecurity. We are therefore on a mission to create more Nanbaan’s across Nigeria and cause ripple positive economic effects.
