About She Can Code

SCC was created by 12th grader, Anika Sood, in 2019 as a part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project which was focused on empowering girls and providing them with the tools they need to excel in computer science. Her project was later expanded by dedicated members of the Del Norte High School Girls in Computer Science club located in San Diego, California.

All She Can Code administrators passionately believe that girls are more than capable of rising to success in the technology industry and hope to make an impact in the future generations through this website. 

 

If you have any questions or would like to help, please contact scc.shecancode@gmail.com, and if you would like to contact the Del Norte Girls In Computer Science Club, please email dngirlsincs@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Shreya Vasant

Girls in CS Alumni

Shreya is a Girls in CS alum and was the Head of Outreach for the 2019-2020 term. In her junior year, she founded a tutoring club for math and science. She used the skills and experience from her tutoring club for workshops and courses that SCC provided. Her passion came from the lack of experience she had in her youth. Shreya took her first coding class in high school where she throughly developed her C programming skills. Due to this, Shreya wants the younger generation to have an early exposure to computer science. 

Priya Khandelwal
