>hey there!

i am daria || 18 y.o || russian || uchicagoan
passionate about:
promoting cs education
with a HUGE emphasis on girls in stem! economically speaking, diversity brings unique experiences and perspectives to the table and allows for a better approach to solving any problem. personally speaking, striving to thrive in a place where you can find no one to relate to impedes learning and can be very discouraging. in either case, everyone deserves to have an opportunity to discover themselves in computer science. i've taken many opportunities to extend my cs skills to younger people, from leading computer hardware workshops with middle schoolers and hs underclassmen, to teaching app design at the girls in tech camp at the new york hall of science. i was the president of the girls who code club at stuyvesant hs and a mentor of the cyberstuy intiative.
building and developing software
i've been coding for the past three years and have over twenty online projects with available source codes. for me, coding is a creative outlet for technical thoughts. because of the vast amount of resources available online and in school, it's something i can always turn to regardless of my financial status. check out my coding journey so far...
