Really good at: Coding: A teacher spotted her aptitude in the sophomore computer science class and encouraged her to major in software engineering. She created an online food shopping list app that prevents shoppers from inadvertently duplicating their purchases.
Tech gave me: “Tech helped me discover
my passions. I didn’t know anything about
computer programming when I got here.”
Why Tech rocks: The majors system: “It forces you to become an adult and start making choices. At 15, you have to choose.”
College plan: Computer science, website development.
Challenge: Entering a male-dominated industry, but “It’s important to be a woman in this field. You show others that they are capable of doing it.”
Influential book: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
For fun: Cooking and baking, especially pasta dishes and tiramisu.
It’s important to be a woman in this field [software engineering]. You show others that they are capable of doing it.
