Bio

Aura, 19, from Oakland, CA, has attended very diverse public schools all her life, which sparked an interest in social issues and helping others. She then joined Girls Who Code because she wanted to explore computer science in a welcoming and inclusive environment, and was captivated by the chance to give back to her community in the San Francisco East Bay. She attends UC Berkeley where she studies Computer Science. Now she teaches computer science to other high-schoolers through founding her own Girls Who Code Club and independently learns computer science languages through online courses, such as codeacademy.com, coursera.com, and edx.org.
