“Education changed my life and the life of my family,” says Zenobia Bomani.   Zenobia entered a primarily white male dominated field as an African American Muslim woman and has spent nearly 20 years in the IT/Software industry. As a young teen mother, there was no such word as ‘quit’.  After graduating high school, she continued her education, quickly advancing throughout her career.  As a single mom and widow at 30, she went on to speak on diversity, working on diversity committees, and completed her BS in Network Telecommunications Systems cum laud, while working as a QA Engineer.   She completed her MA in Adult Ed & Training, promoted to a QA Engineering Manager, and served as a career mentor and panelist on Women of VMWare. Hardships were met with triumphs fueling opportunities to share her experiences with others through mentorship and community engagement, raising awareness by speaking on mental health in the African American community. Today she’s a proud grandmother of three, serving on a racial equality group, and works as a Sr. QA Engineer. Zenobia says, “We can all lose our way on this journey called life.  Once we find our way again, we must remember to be the light and show others the way.”
