Aya Mouallem is passionate about running immersive technology and leadership programs with mentorship for girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Aya was born and raised in Lebanon. She is currently studying Computer and Communications Engineering at the American University of Beirut. As the Co-founder and Co-director at All Girls Code, she is responsible for planning and executing workshops and events to increase diversity in the tech fields. Through her initiative All Girls Code, she was chosen by the Lebanese Prime Minister as a partner in the Summer of Innovation. Additionally, she also is the College Ambassador at Stanford’s She++ and was chosen to be a Google Woman Techmaker. As an advocate, Aya is proud that 90 percent of All Girls Code graduates join STEM fields at university.
Aya advocates for girls and women because without women’s tech and leadership skills, the STEM fields will not advance properly.
In her free time, Aya enjoys running, reading, coding, building robots, and practicing yoga with family and friends.
