Today I had an amazing opportunity to attend the DCFemTech Inspire event!
The DCFemTech Inspire event celebrates the successes of women in the DC tech community and I was invited to speak about Cupcakes 'n Code. It was amazing to hear about the awesome accomplishments of strong, hardworking women in the field and what they were proud of.
This couldn't have been possible without my mentor, Mr. David Bock, founder of Loudoun Codes!
My flight is all booked and ready to go!
I am kind of nervous to be flying all the way out to San Francisco by myself (taking connecting flights with layovers and such), but I guess this is what #adulting is.
Since this trip occurs right before Spring Break starts, I will be catching a flight from San Francisco and meeting my parents in Las Vegas on the way back for our family vacation.
This should be fun- I'm thinking of vlogging the full trip! Let me know what you think about that.
In one of my earlier blog posts, I told you all that I would be applying as a She++ #include fellow to attend a 3 day all-expense paid trip to San Francisco to meet tech executives and present my initiative, Cupcakes 'n Code in Silicon Valley.
Well- I got selected! Over 500 people applied to this fellowship, and only 30 fellows were selected. I am so excited to attend and meet other girls, learning about their awesome initiatives to share coding with underrepresented groups in their communities.
