Bio
I'm a junior undergraduate student studying Computer Science at the Raikes School at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I grew up here in Omaha, NE. I'm one of the co-founders of Girls Code Lincoln, a nonprofit in Lincoln, Nebraska that introduces girls to technology with creativity, community, collaboration, and confidence. I'm the director of curriculum, so I find cool projects that make technology interesting for kids, especially those in underrepresented groups. I'm passionate about diversity and inclusion in STEM. Outside of school and nonprofit work, I love to drink coffee and read books. My technical interests include backend web and mobile development and machine learning. After graduation, I plan to become a Software Engineer before eventually pursuing my master's or MBA.
Talk Description

This panel discussion features four organizations working to fill the STEM pipeline, how they are addressing the problem at hand, and what you can do to get involved.
