Former intern Naomi joins list of leading young women in tech
A student who was hired as an executive after joining a fintech start-up as an intern is campaigning to attract other young women to the technology sector.
Naomi Harris, 21, is now Head of Digital Marketing at ImageNPay, the payments app that aims to rid the world of plastic charge cards.
