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.

Rohin is an 8th-grader at Oak Valley Middle School. He has been coding since a very young age and especially enjoys Java. He loves to play music and enjoys 3D-printing and modeling. Rohin is truly grateful for this opportunity and looks forward to working with others through She Can Code.
Hi, I am a junior at Del Norte High School and the Head of Outreach for the Girls in Computer Science club at Del Norte. I have been working with C for the last two years through coursework and this club. Earlier this year I founded a tutor club for math and science, and we transitioned the tutoring mindset from one club to another coming up with the workshops we have previously and now the 8 week course. The idea came from the lack of experience I had before taking my first coding class in high school, and I wanted the youth to have an early exposure.
Priya is a Del Norte High School alum and was President of Girls in CS for the 2019-2020 school year. Priya found her love for computer science through her school's AP Computer Science class, and since then has fostered her passion through coding mobile apps and games, pursuing technology entrepreneurship, as well as doing research in machine learning. An ardent believer in the value of computational thinking, Priya hopes to further introduce people of all ages to the fun that computer science brings. Priya is attending Stanford University to study Computer Science and Mathematics.
Sarika is a rising junior at Del Norte High School with an interest in computer science and its application in medicine. She loves coding in Java and Python, and is an experienced website administrator who often implements CSS/HTML. She took AP Computer Science A her sophomore year and has developed many projects using Amazon Web Services, DynamoDB, and Swing Interface.

Girls in CS President & She Can Code Founder
In her junior year of high school, as the VP of DNHS Girls in CS, Anika built this website as a part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project in which she addressed the problem of girls being a minority in the computer science industry. Since the creation of She Can Code, she has developed curriculum in C, Python, and Scratch, taught numerous coding workshops, an 8-week coding course, and a Python coding camp.
Her passions include software engineering, photography, design, and anything involving computer science! In the future, she hopes to expand SCC to a nonprofit organizations and help children across the world experience the joy of computing.
Anika is currently a senior at Del Norte High School, the president of Girls in Computer Science, Head of SWE for the Women in Science and engineering club, and a tutor for Learning Light. She hopes to earn her bachelors and masters in computer science and continue to expand her knowledge of this vast subject.
Girls in CS Vice President
As Vice President of Del Norte's Girls in Computer Science (GICS), May uses her programming background to teach kids in her community who are interested in learning how to code. She hopes to inspire the younger generation to learn about software and expand GICS's influence to all over the world by being a co-founder of SCC's non-profit. She also wants to encourage girls to learn how to code in order to address the gender gap in STEM related fields. May helps organize and teach many of the lessons that GICS have been offering and will continue to offer despite the ongoing pandemic. She enjoys teaching and has experience in tutoring kids in numerous subjects. May is currently a senior planning to take AP computer science in order to add Java to her growing list of languages (currently consisting of C, Python, Spanish and Vietnamese).
Aidan is a passionate programmer who enjoys building innovating/utilitarian tools or combining hard, systematic programming with artistic endeavors. He particularly enjoys teaching about coding and all its neat intricacies, and is passionate about building the summer coding bootcamp
Rachel is a sophomore at Del Norte High School with interests in computer science, cyber security, and entrepreneurship. She enjoys learning new coding languages like java and python as well as teaching others about such languages. She has been part of Del Norte's GICS club since her freshman year and has enjoyed further honing her coding skills. Rachel is a strong advocate for girls in STEM and is excited to use the skills she has to expose young girls to STEM fields through She Can Code programs.
Girls in CS Event Coordinator
Meena is a sophomore at Del Norte High School and the Event Coordinator for the Girls in Computer Science club. She enjoys coding in different languages, including Python and Java, video editing, app development, and teaching. She has teaching experience and has helped with the lessons that Girls in CS has offered to local students. Through the outreach team in Girls in CS and SCC's outreach, she hopes to continue sharing her passion for computer science and inspire students to have an interest in STEM.
