"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 started Superposition.
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."
