So my She++ fellowship has a portion of it where any fellow can apply for a 3 day all expense paid trip to San Francisco to attend a summit. Apparently it's super awesome and you can met tech icons like Sheryl Sandberg (my all time hero- her book is amazing) and tour companies like Apple and Google. However, only 30 fellows from across the nation are chosen to go.
I am working so hard to make my first event a success and for all the girls to have a great time! Today, I went to my local library to inquire about using their "maker mill" (technology room) to host the event, but was turned down.
It's okay though- just a bump in the road! My goals for this event are multiplying, I can't wait to see how far this will go and how great of an impact it has on our community!
It's been a while since I last blogged, but for a good reason. I have been developing my capstone idea and it's finally here- Cupcakes 'n Code!
The reason I decided on this as the name of my initiative is because it combines eating delicious cupcakes with learning code: two awesome things I can't live without.
My hopes are that the cupcakes are a sweet incentive for this awesome coding party that I am hosting, encouraging girls to mix code with their other passions!
Oh yes, I did think of this idea while I was eating the most delicious Georgetown Cupcake, 10/10 would recommend.
