"My seven intensive weeks at Girls Who Code made me feel the
importance and strength of an all-girls environment. Every girl
deserved to explore computer science; females shouldn’t shield
from a field— like I originally did— because of social norms. To
help females access opportunities quicker and easier, in 2016, I
I wanted to show students the fundamentals of computer science,
provide an empowering environment, and engage them with
real-life applications through project-based learning. For our
attendees, I aspire for them to not fear failure and instead
embrace and learn from the past. During the event, I saw so many
smiles as they were so eager to build a project with their
newfound skills and it was then where I knew I wanted to help
even more students learn computer science."

"Attending Superposition II was one of the most empowering
experiences I've ever had. Having constantly been a gender
minority in my STEM classes, it was encouraging to connect with
so many girls who shared my same interest. I felt like I
belonged, and I wanted every girl to feel the same way.
I immediately joined the Superposition III organizing team, and
was promoted to Superposition IV Lead Director one year later.
Several months before Superposition IV, I felt conflicted about
how our team's efforts would last for only 24 hours. We aimed to
help bridge the gender gap in STEM, but an annual event was not
enough. We had to do more.
Starting in March 2020, three Superposition IV organizers and I
spearheaded Superposition's expansion from a 24-hour hackathon
to an international non-profit. Now, our chapters, mentorship
programs, and events are reaching hundreds of thousands of women
worldwide. Above all, the most rewarding aspect of leading
Superposition is knowing that we're positively impacting others.
It truly makes the effort worthwhile."
