Though some truth can be found in a majority of stereotypes, there are always exceptions. This stereotype, in fact, can be easily broken. How? Girls Who Code. The name of the club strongly reflects the reality: a nation-wide group of women devoted to learning to code and inspiring others. I was initially exposed to programming through an Hour of Code event two years ago. First, I balked at attending, picturing the aforementioned stereotypical nerd. I did not want to turn into that, did I?
together to produce something awe-inspiring. Therefore, it was perhaps to be expected that I would sign up to be a member of my local Girls Who Code club in the beginning of my eighth grade year.
significant words portray Reshma Saujani’s objective as the founder of Girls Who Code. Before she started her educational program, Reshma Saujani was engaged in the 2008 presidential election. She was the first Indian-American woman to run for Congress. Reshma was committed to run for the election even with low popularity in votes; eventually, she lost the congressional race. Her determination to fight for her program, Girls Who Code, was strengthened by her lost in the congressional race. Her elaborate
discuss is Girls Who Code. The specific web page I am analyzing is https://girlswhocode.com/summer-immersion-programs/. The web page discusses their summer immersion program which is a "Free 7-week summer programs for current 10th-11th grade girls to learn coding and get exposure to tech jobs". Based on all of the pictures, colors, and participant testimonials from young girls who have participated in the program, I believe that the primary audience would be current 10th-11th grade girls whom they
Gillian Goodman’s article “A Girl Who Codes” attempts to spread awareness of importance of Computer Science among girls. The author condemns the less involvement of women in the growing field of Computer Science and advocates that women should also start coding instead of inclining towards streams that don’t pay well. In the beginning of the article, she introduces Nikita Rau who started ‘XX Hackers’, a high club for girls interested in learning Computer Science. Then, gradually Goodman expresses
Girls Who Code is a non-profit organization that educations you and provides resources to adapt the ability to code. The problem is the very large gender gap in technology: since 1995 the percent of women computer scientists dropped by 13 percent. That percentage is expected to drop at least 2 percent in 2027. That means 22 percent of computer scientist will be women in 2027. Girls Who Code mission is, “to close the gender gap in technology. (https://girlswhocode.com/about-us/)” I personally believe
understand the software and coding it took to run what I built. In 11th grade, I’d wanted to take AP computer science, but I stuck to my advanced choir class, hoping to audition into the next level. Finally in the spring, I stumbled upon the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. The seven-week experience was eye opening for me, and I learned so much that helped me make connections and better understand the devices I worked with on a regular basis. I had been a bit
Imagine your life as it is now, but with one of the people you love most missing. You have not heard from them in years, and you have no idea what happened to them, where they have gone, or, most importantly, if they are still alive. This is exactly how Henrik Vanger is living his life. His niece Harriet Vanger went missing long ago, and her disappearance has plagued him with a seemingly pointless, constant search for her. Nothing new has turned up in a long time and he decides to hire Mikael Blomkvist
I have never been more intrigued by a character then I have with this text. In the novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, Larsson writes in a thought-provoking and all around different caricature in the form of Lisbeth Salander. Lisbeth is the secondary protagonist in the novel and is a terrific character at that. Unlike some of the other characters, she connects effectively to the overall theme of the novel. She is different from the people that surround her due to her being both
In both film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s Män Som Hatar Kvinnor (Men Who Hate Women), the 2009 Swedish film directed by Niels Arden Oplev , and the 2011 American version, renamed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , directed by David Fincher, the two principle characters only meet halfway through the film. For a significant portion of the movie, they interact only by spying on each other. As a film that addresses differences between male and female interactions, the presence of a male or female protagonist
