Ruchi Sanghvi was 23 years old when she became the first female engineer at Facebook.
She developed the news feed and saw the company grow from a small start-up into the world's biggest social network.
Despite her successful career in Silicon Valley, she says when she decided to pursue engineering, she was confronted with old-fashioned views.
"People asked me whether I was going to roll up my sleeves, wear overalls and work on the factory floor," she told World Update on BBC World Service Radio.
