After completing her BEng degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Central Lancashire, Cherhabil has built an admirable career which includes positions at some of the top names in finance and technology. She began as an intern at IBM, after which she took up an Analyst role at Atos and was also an Associate at JP Morgan Chase.

Sarrah was a speaker at a technology event, Lesbians Who Tech, a hugely forward-thinking event and community. Its focus is on giving LGBTQ women, non-binary and trans people visibility, opportunities and encouragement to get into a career in technology. “Diverse representation is a priority for us.” Says a statement of the organisation, “We're proud to say that our Summit speakers are 80% queer women, 50% women of colour, 25% Black & Latinx, and 15% transgender and gender nonconforming.”

With so much accomplished in such a short amount of time, Cherhabil is sure to be a key player in the future fintech sector.
