I am a junior at Interlake High School in Bellevue, Washington. I am passionate about robotics and technology, which is why I am inspired to get more girls to explore science, math, robotics and technology through the non-profit I have founded called TakeKnowledge. While I spend most of my time on robotics, developing electronic gadgets, reading magazines like Popular Science and Mental Floss, my favorite TV program is Cake Boss, which has almost nothing to do with technology.

My HERlead Project: COding fOr KIds (COOKI)

My project will work to bridge the gender gap that currently exists in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields through an online community of mentors and students that exposes girls to computer science and technology at an early age.
