What drives us

"by 2040, 70% of jobs will require some computer science knowledge."

"Our youth plays a lot of video games, most of the games that they play aren't built by us... It's important for people who look like myself to be in this field to speak for us. Anything that we consume we need to be a part of, and the IT space is one of those areas."
