Girl Rising Reflection & Applications For Girls Who Code — Now Live!


“Last weeks ‘Girl Rising’ showing to kick off Girls Who Code held at UC Davis was inspriring. One of the girls’ stories really struck me. After 2010’s Haitian earthquake destroys litttle Wadley’s home and school, the small but never daunted girl finds herself climbing out of the rubble in search of a shanty school where she can continue her education. When turned away, Wadley’s proclamation, ‘I will come back every day until I can stay,’ left not just a smile on my face, but a irrepressible faith that this spirited young girl from Haiti would fight harder and harder with passing time for her education. All I could think was, ‘Get it, girl!'” —Megan

Riding on the wave of success of the innaugural event that took place in New York City last October, we at Global HealthShare are honored to be teaming up with Intel this summer to bring Girls Who Code to the West Coast.
