Repost: How one woman is using Google Maps Platform to transform the trucking industry

For Chiamaka Nwosu, Google Maps Platform is about more than tracking cargo in Africa. It’s about making a lasting mark on the world through the power of technology.

Chiamaka Nwosu still remembers the day her father brought home a computer. She had always been fascinated by how things worked, tinkering with everything from toys to the family generator. To 10-year-old Chiamaka, the computer posed an opportunity — a mystery, which, once understood, could unlock remarkable possibilities in the world around her.

Chiamaka channeled her fascination with tech into the classroom. She became one of only 12 women to study computer science in her university class of 110 and, after years of hard work, was awarded a prestigious scholarship to an incubator program in Ghana at the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology. It was there that she set her sights on solving a real world problem. Read the rest of Chiamaka’s story here.
