Question: Why do you think it’s important for you to attend GHC?

Answer: “I believe it is important for me to attend GHC to better understand the computer science community and to meet potential employers I wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to interact with. I also think it’s important to learn about what it means to be a woman in computing because we are such a minority in the field.”
