Working in the tech industry, I’ve seen first hand that there aren’t many women of color in this field. So, I started volunteering with Black Girls Code, a non-profit organization that provides technology education programs for Black girls ages 7-17. It excites me to see how proud these young women are of what they create – whether it is an app or website.

The other part is being old enough to personally remember the Civil Rights Movement.
