For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher. My mom tells the story of how I would sit all my teddy bears down, facing a whiteboard, and stand up there and teach them. I never considered another career, much less a career in STEM. I have always been bad at spatial stuff (building legos, drawing, etc.), so I never could imagine myself as someone who could create things. While I was in high school, my history class participated in Code.org’s Hour of Code. This was the first time I heard the term “coding,” and this experience made me realize that this is something I could be good at. That Hour of Code showed me that I don't have to be good with my hands to build cool things.
