The following linked article, and more broadly Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code, have been an incredible inspiration to me on this journey. A large part of why I have worked so hard on BBC is to be an example for my daughter and other young women. To teach through representation. I am committed to delivering my daughter into a world of equality and most importantly teaching her the skillset that will allow her limitless amounts of success. To teach her to be Brave now and throughout life.

How many times have you ever wanted to do something but stopped yourself because you didn’t feel quite ready or didn’t think you were good enough? Probably one time too many. You are not alone. While speaking atHarvard, the founder of Girls Who Code, Reshma Saujani, shared her experience withobsessively striving for perfection and how she thinks we canraise more successful women.

Saujani created Girls Who Code in 2012 with the hopes of inspiring, educating, and equipping girls with the computing skills they need to pursue 21st-century opportunities. Five years later, Saujani and her team have taught more than 40,000 girls to code all over the country.
