The CNN Heroes honoree revealed on First Class Material that she decided to teach girls to code because “we don’t have a lot of females in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) space.”

 

Realizing that the women in STEM were just a “minority”, Abisoye set out to empower more women by catching them young.

A great number of girls have been positively impacted by Abisoye’s work. Not only have they been empowered with important skills, but some have also been able to get meaningful employment following their training.

 

Abisoye revealed that organizations reach out to her NGO asking for female programmers because they believe female programmers bring a different perspective from what the male programmers bring.
