Girls Who Code

As someone who likes tough problems and wants to try to solve them, I have to be resilient. Being thrown into the deep end and doing something you never thought you would accomplish is really powerful. I'm working to advance women and girls to encourage them to be fearless in the face of challenges.

Girls Who Code

CEO and Founder

When I first started, I wasn’t intending to build a movement. I was planning to see what we could do differently to get more girls in technology and engineering. Today, we are working towards our goal teach one million girls to code by 2020. By giving them the tools to teach and mentor other girls, girls become leaders in their schools and communities.

This country gave me and my family so much that ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to serve. During my time on the campaign trail, I visited schools where I saw first hand the lack of girls in robotics classes. I spent 2011 and 2012 thinking about how the lack of women in technology came to be, and ways to approach it from the ground-up.

I knocked on the Dean's door and said, "Everything I've done in my life has been about the mission of this school. I want to change the world. Let me in!" When people ask what my biggest strength is, I say: It’s that I’m shameless. I think you should always ask for help.
