Chapter Twenty-nine: We talk with Isabel about her love of books and computer science
October 11 is International Day of the Girl and what better way to celebrate than to share our interview with Isabel Humphreys, a junior in high school, who loves books & computer science. She is helping bridge the gender gap in STEM by mentoring young women to help them see a place for themselves in STEM. Isabel started her journey into computer science in elementary school and a note for all you parents and educators out there, encouragement is key. In high school, she challenges herself to speak up & set a tone for inclusivity in her majority-male classes. Isabel is also one of the most passionate and accomplished readers Ms. Fitz has ever taught!
