Q&A: Girls Who Code founder talks college, bravery and letting go of perfection

Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of the national nonprofit Girls Who Code, visited Oxford on Monday to deliver a keynote address, "Girls Who Code: Paving a STEM Path Forward" as part of Miami's Lecture Series Monday night. Saujani, a former attorney, became passionate about closing the gender gap in technology in 2010, during her campaign as the first Indian-American woman to run for Congress. Before Saujani addressed a packed crowd at Hall Auditorium, The Miami Student sat down with her to discuss her undergraduate experience.
