Forbes chooses Egyptian software engineer among most influential people under 30


Egypt congratulated Egyptian engineer Dina Ayman, the youngest software director at Microsoft, for being chosen by Forbes magazine among the most influential young people under the age of 30.

She was chosen for her great role in empowering, supporting and nurturing women in management and technology fields, as Ayman works in an area where women make up only 7%.

Egyptian Minister of State for Immigration and Expatriate Affairs Nabila Makram said Egypt is very proud of Ayman as she is a unique and inspiring role model who both embodies the empowerment of women and young people.

Makram claimed that Ayman was able to achieve several successes in the field of technology and exerted an influence in American society.

The Minister of Immigration praised the role of Egyptian women and Egyptian youth abroad, for their role in promoting Egypt abroad, as well as their cooperation in sharing their experiences in the projects of development implemented by the State.

Ayman was born in Alexandria and graduated in 2018 with a bachelor’s and master’s degree, achieving a unique achievement in a male-dominated field like computer engineering. She is the first Egyptian in the United States to accomplish this.

She is the youngest university professor in the field of computer engineering at the University of New Jersey. She also works as a program manager at Microsoft.
