“If you can find something you’re really passionate about, jump on that. If you’re passionate about something and you bring your talent, you’ll be unstoppable.” – Megan Smith, CTO of the United States

 

Tell us about yourself along with a fun fact!
I am a recent high school graduate aspiring to break the gender gap for females in Science and Tech. I won the 2017 NCWIT AIC Maryland Competition. Just 2 years ago I participated in the Girls Who Code summer Immersion program and now know 7 computer languages.
I am teaching a middle and high school girl 3d printing class to my home school community this September. I am a member of the TenXList ,The most talented Women in Science and Tech in the world.
Fun fact about me… I am an 18-year-old triplet. I am the only girl 🙂

Ideal Job:
I would like to become an engineer. Not sure what type yet but I love making things and fixing things.

What knowledge would you impart to women in order for them to REIGN their lives?
We can do whatever we put our minds too! Girls, we are just as good as guys, if not better, at tech.
