Science and Technology is cool and fun (and if you’ve noticed past #WCW submissions, you know that I greatly admire women who kick ass in STEM fields). In the US, 74% of girls in middle school like STEM and are interested in it. By the time these girls get to high school, only 0.4% of them say that they plan to major in Computer Science. Enter Kimberly Bryant.

Kimberly is the founder of Black Girls Code, a non-profit that strives to introduce coding to young girls of color at a time when they are naturally thinking the age-old question: what do I want to be when I grow up?
