My name is Allie (@umich_steminist on Instagram) and I am raising funds to support girls' STEM education within Detroit Public Schools. All of the funds from this campaign will be donated to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation and will put towards STEM programming for girls.
I believe in the creativity, determination, and bravery of women. There are countless young girls in our world with the potential to create incredible positive change, but they need to be encouraged, included, empowered, and invested in to make this happen. I have seen first hand that once young girls are shown what computer science truly is and that they are capable of learning it, they want to pursue further study and exploration. I want to help bring them the initial experience and education that will inspire further study of STEM. I support girls who code!
