What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?

Growing up, I was inspired by writers like Maya Angelou and Toni Morrison. When reading their stories and poems with my mom, I learned about the struggles that women face around the world. I wanted to step up to make a difference.

Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.

I started a global blog and organization called Allgirlithm with two of my close friends, Anne and Joanna, to share computing and artificial intelligence with more girls of diverse backgrounds. We've since reached over 50,000 views and started club chapters in 62 locations across eight countries.

Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?

Cooking, baking, making origami, and hiking.
