MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

"I first became interested in programming when a math teacher suggested that I look into it. Soon, at the age of 10, this whole world of computer science opened up to me and I realized that I had the power to create the many games, websites and technology that I saw around me. Yet, when I tried to find a community for girls my age interested in coding, I couldn’t find any. Instead, I found statistics. For example, women only earn 18% of computer science bachelor's degrees in the United States. I have learned that computer science has the ability to solve world problems, but without representation of women in these fields, we won’t be able to properly address these global issues. I founded Girls Will Code, in order to show girls that they can pursue these fields. In a Microsoft study, it was found that girls gain interest in STEM at the age of 11, but quickly lose it at age 15. Engaging and inspiring girls between their teenage years is crucial not only for our workforce, but to allow girls to have their own choice in their lives and not be brought down by social stigmas.

Today, Girls Will Code strives to #debugTheGap through many initiatives, such as Girl Forward and most recently, #CodeSaBahay"
