The moment I had gotten into the KS WELI program, I knew my life changed. I am so grateful to be a part of such powerful entrepreneurs and be able to showcase what I love most. Additionally, My experiences being an informatics major with a UX Design concentration has helped me learn how I can design technology from a lens that can help others. I hope to learn more about entrepreneurship and informatics to help change the world!
About the FoundHER(s)
I grew up in a small town in Nebraska for the majority of my life. I realized that there were a lot of students with potential and I wanted to empower them. My idea was inspired by my 6th grade math class. I had a teacher that helped me learn math and encouraged me to succeed. Within that year, my confidence soared and I started to believe in myself. I learned how the right educational environment can change someone’s life. I specifically want to focus on empowering rural students who may feel unconfident in themselves and provide them the resources and framework to succeed. I want them to be able to look at themselves and say “I believe in who I am”.
