Codestarter believes that any kid, anywhere should have the opportunity to create something incredible, to one day become the future of tech. And it all starts with having their own computer. Theresa is working with their core team, volunteers, donors, and partner coding organizations and schools to give laptops to kids who want to learn how to code, but can’t afford their own computers. Getting laptops into the hands and homes of underserved kids is a missing puzzle piece in the collaborative race to get more kids learning how to code.

Theresa never dreamed of running her own company, let alone a tech company. After more than a decade working with education-focused nonprofits and researching class, gender, and labor for her PhD, she realized that supporting world-wide access to technology education is one of the greatest ways to enable more people to confront a heterogeneity of problems important to them.
