About this submission

As a female in computer science (and one of the only females in virtual production), I have experienced the field's gender discrimination firsthand. My goal is to create spaces for and encourage other females to pursue STEM fields — I have even founded a registered 501c3, Code Your Chances, to inspire the next generation of female computer scientists. Margaret’s story was of personal inspiration to me as I learned to code. I felt her story must be told in the hopes it would speak out to other girls looking for a strong female role model in computer science.
