Rebecca Kahn

Award: 
2016 South Carolina Affiliate Award for AiC Winner, 2017 National Award for AiC Honorable Mention
Charleston, South Carolina
Clemson University

Since receiving two honors from NCWIT Aspirations in Computing (AiC), Rebecca has applied her computing skills towards her passion for medicine: for example, Rebecca has volunteered at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) hospital and has conducted a patient flow analysis with her fellow volunteers.

She also got the opportunity to interview her long-time role model, Apple CEO Tim Cook. The conversation they had was so inspiring that it led to the creation of  Innovator to Innovator, a series of personal essays and stories of innovation, as told by AiC Community members by way of conversations with Apple executives.
