Why Daphnie Chose to be {LIKE A KLOSS} for Career Day

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Daphnie had career day at school yesterday and when I asked her what she wants to be when she grows up (I already knew the answer, but wanted to check anyway.) she said she wanted to be a supermodel, a mom, and a scientist/tech person. While that sounds like a lot, it's really not at all unattainable. So when trying to help her figure out a costume, I figured no one would help better represent model and tech than Karlie Kloss.

Daphnie and I both look up to Karlie not only because she is a supermodel (and from St. Louis!), but she is a huge supporter of women in technology! Karlie started a coding program that helps girls ages 13-18 learn how to code in FREE summer programs. That is so incredibly inspiring. Karlie can often be seen at the events as well, which just shows how real she is and how she truly supports women in tech. 

You all know by now as a woman in tech myself, I am so excited to show Daphnie a great role model like Karlie Kloss that is interested in and is accomplishing Daphnie's dreams and goals. She has a super inspiring person to look up to and that makes me so proud!

Women and girls can have brains and beauty!

'Before my first coding class, the idea that I could build something with code seemed nearly impossible, but after only a couple of courses, I was working with my classmates to program a small drone. I realized that, just like art and fashion, code is about creativity, and that women who have these skills have the power to shape our future - and often have. Women are essential in forging digital progress and knowing how to code is the key to exploring and creating the newest frontier.'

-Karlie Kloss

Go check out her website and encourage a young woman you know to sign up for a course. Daphnie can't wait to be old enough to take her summer program!
