Sonia Rakotomantsoa has always pushed herself to try new things. A native of Paris, she moved to London eight years ago to experience a different culture and master English. As an undergraduate, she studied computer science, building on that with a masters concentrating on what was then called human computer interaction, now referred to as user experience design, and artificial intelligence.

It’s time we had a difficult conversation. I think you’re old enough. We’ve been dancing around this issue for far too long.
