Girls Who Code Facts
In 2021, I had the privilege of being admitted to the Girls Who Code summer programs, where I not only developed my computer science skills but also worked on projects addressing pressing issues in our communities, such as cyber security and climate change. It was during this experience that I became aware of the significant gender gap in the technology field. Motivated to make a difference, I reached out to Girls Who Code and collaborated with them to establish two clubs at BeHASSTic. These clubs are dedicated to providing comprehensive resources, webinar training, and ongoing support for young girls in their journeys in technology. Over the course of two years, BeHASSTic has fostered a strong partnership with Girls Who Code, a renowned organization committed to closing the gender gap and empowering young girls. Together, we have successfully launched two Girls Who Code clubs, offering a platform for girls to explore and excel in the world of technology.
