TECH NEWS + INSPIRATION


After starting a free tutoring service, 17-year-old senior Athena Hernandez of The Bishop's School in La Jolla, Calif., published a new book aiming to teach Spanish-speaking children the basics of coding in Python.

(TNS) — Being the only girl, coupled with being the only Hispanic student, in many of the computer science classes and programs Athena Coco Hernandez was in, was a lot. Don't misunderstand, though. It wasn't enough to push her out; in fact, it compelled her to bring other students like herself into the field. "It was a bit concerning because, with things like natural language processing and machine learning and stuff, it's really important to have diverse people working on things like that, and I wanted to see more people like me. … I went to seek out students that might not have access to computer science classes," she says. "I always really like to share my love for learning through teaching; because it was my favorite subject, I recognize the importance of how technology is growing in the world and how it can open many opportunities for students. I just wanted to provide more opportunities for students to sort of get started in the subject and find the passion that I found."

Some recent reports have even suggested that women have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic - loss of jobs and difficulty getting back into the national workforce.
