I have been announced as the 2018 National Honorable Mention of the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing for my work founding Girls Can Code, creating SaveBB, organizing library girls coding workshops, and assisting as an intern for the Congressional App Challenge. Thank you to the reviewers, selection committee, and the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing team for this award!
