I’m currently one of three co-organizers of the local Portland chapter of Django Girls. Django Girls is an international nonprofit that offers free one day workshops which guide women and non-binary folks through creating their first website using Python and Django. After volunteering as a coach, I stepped up to help organize workshops in 2016 and have helped to coordinate four workshops so far.
In college I participated in developing a program which aimed to help bring engineering education into the K-12 classroom. I partnered with another student and volunteered in a local 3rd grade class once a week to help students with their science coursework and teach them about basic engineering concepts. Our work culminated with teaching a one hour class on design, engineering, and problem solving.
