A MESSAGE FROM
In my hometown, it's not easy to be the kid who's interested in computer science. Where humanities-centered extracurriculars dominate funding, attendance & the limelight, the STEM clubs I had hung my hopes on simply did not exist like I had imagined. I had to take my education into my own hands, taking the initiative to teach myself coding languages, to find opportunities to learn more & to discover where my creations could be recognized. There's not a single moment I regret in my pursuit of an education in computer science, but believe me, it did require relentless pursuing.
Out of this experience though, I decided to create TechnoTeens. I want to offer other kids who are interested in CS the guidance and support that I had to search so hard for. I want girls to feel like they belong in the field & I want to boys to get used to seeing girls coding alongside them too. I want to cultivate the programming community I yearned so much for when I was younger. I want to make CS more available to students in not only my hometown, but eventually anywhere where it doesn't get too much support.
TechnoTeens has an ambitious mission, but at its core, aims to gift students with the most powerful and promising tool of all: code.
Thank you for your belief in our mission,
