Girls Who Code is a non-profit organization founded by Reshma Saujani to close the gender gap in technology, specifically coding. Over the course of the program, girls learn to code and eventually make their own website about an issue that they face. Our particular program is Omaha Girls Who Code, and we learn to code through Do Space. This website wouldn't be possible without Girls Who Code.
Hi, my name is Laura. I am 12 years old and in the 7th grade. I'm bi and use she/they pronouns. I am a theater nerd (Hamilton is my favorite musical) and I love to read. I'm obsessed with Marie Lu's "Legend" series, even though I'm on the second book. When I'm older, I want to be an author, an artist, or a programmer. I joined the Girls Who Code program because I want to code my own website one day.

Hi, my name is Brie. I'm the instructor for Girls Who Code. I've worked in tech for almost 20 years. I have an undergrad degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where I majored in studio arts with a concentration in animation and video games and I recently finished my MFA at Iowa State University, where I focused on illustration and comics. In my spare time I think about how people use computers and herd basset hounds.
