Panel: Strengthening the STEM Pipeline
- 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.
