Tell us your story.
I actually started by falling in love with coding. My previous work only involved the digital space in that I helped people with limited skills access online resources. However, once I started learning to code through codeacademy.org, I wanted to learn everything. RailsGirls and Meetup groups in general really helped me learn about the tech landscape. A couple of other women coders I met through those groups really helped provide guidance along the way.
What do you most want other women and young girls to know about being a woman in our digital culture?
It's a mistake to opt out of learning about technology, out of fear or a sense that it's not you. Even if you never want to code or be serious about social media, it is good to know how they work. And once you have those skills, don't be afraid of being open about that and using them. People will assume you're not tech-savvy until you show them that you are.
