My high school maths teacher in the USA encouraged me to start programming, but instead of heading to uni, I left school and worked in the snowboard industry for 15 years, which brought me to New Zealand.

Several fails on my journey have included a soul-crushing 90-minute mid-term lab test where I scored 0%. But I survived, and passed the course. You learn to fail fast and often in computer science; if you aren’t failing, you aren’t trying. But when you figure out what you want to do, you can combine computer science with absolutely anything!

>> Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, University of Canterbury

>> President, UC Computer Chicks
