Student Nomination Story

Ms. Sakallah encouraged young girls like myself, to try different programming clubs and broaden our scope. She created clubs Girls Who Code and Linkbot robotics, to help prepare girls for a career as a software engineer by teaching them how to code. She would take time out of her own day and invest it in these clubs - some days she would stay in school till 5-6 pm. She would invite engineers to help us learn of the various career paths available to us. She was a true inspiration who made girls aware that STEM program was not just for boys and in fact girls could not just compete but excel at it.
