SCC was created by 11th 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.
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.

Meet the team!
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.
I am currently a sophomore and an avid fan of website development and administration, Unix/Linux scripting and system management, Cisco IOS, and learning new programming languages. Some of my favorites include Java, HTML/CSS and Python. I took AP Computer Science A this year, and loved it so much, and I wanted to share that love for computer science through contributing to DNHS Girls in CS's outreach team, and hopefully pursuing a computer science related degree in college.
Girls in CS Head of Outreach
I am a junior with expertise in Python and C programming. I've had around four years of teaching and tutoring experience in mathematics, physics, and computer science. Some of my passions include pure mathematical research, machine learning projects, and tinkering with Raspberry Pi/Arduino.
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 a hardworking member of Del Norte's Girls in Computer Science (GICS), I use my programming background to teach local kids in my community who are interested in learning how to code. I hope to help inspire the younger generation to learn about software, since technology plays such a large role in modern day life. I also help organize and set up many of the lessons that GICS have been offering and will continue to offer despite the ongoing pandemic. I enjoy teaching and I have experience in tutoring kids in numerous subjects. I am currently a junior planning to take AP Computer Science next year.
