" I'm passionate about changing the status quo within the tech sector, to create a more diverse workforce. Working with our next generation of innovators is so rewarding; seeing the impact we're having on the girls we work with is what drives me forward. "
" Over the last year we’ve worked with over 200 teenage girls and seen them develop skills, increase confidence and believe that they can have a successful career in tech. Now it’s time to work with girls nationally, and create real and lasting change. "
