Athenna M.

Athenna M.

Teaching Assistant

Athenna is a Senior at Florida International University pursuing a degree in Computer Science. One reason she decided to pursue a degree in CS was the lack of women going into the field. Only 18% of women pursue a degree in CS.

She has always been passionate about working with kids. When the opportunity with Code/Art presented itself, she jumped into it. She hopes to continue helping girls join the community of Computer Science.

Teaching Assistant

Nathaly Hernandez is a student at Florida International University studying towards a degree in Information Technology (Software Track).

Having learned about coding during her time at college, she wishes not only to pursue a degree in technology but as well to expose more children, especially POC, to coding early on in their education so that they can consider a career in Computer Science/IT once they enter college. “I want to see more girls get into coding so that they don’t feel intimidated or out of place when they first start out. This is a field for everyone, especially girls!”
