Computer Science is was never considered in my family. As an African-American Muslim female, I was expected to be a nurse (if I wasn’t a housewife already). However, as a kid, I would secretly be in my own little virtual world, playing coding games. Those moments were precious to me, I was able to have an anonymous presence where my identity did not matter. Going into high school, I was still pursuing a track I did not like, preparing to major in public health in college. However, this summer, I participated in a program called Kode With Klossy, that allowed minority females to code an app or website. Having no technical relevant coding experience before, I felt out-of-place. The turn around was, I was introduced to females who were in the same boat as me, and together, we all stepped into this world of Computer Science together. At the end of the summer, I had built an app for girls in STEM and a website dedicated to bringing education in technology to low-income students. Now, as a college freshman, I plan to build projects that help those in my community and bring awareness to diversity within Computer Science.
