Words from Jessica G:
“It was amazing and inspiring to witness a major corporation Google, give back to young people and take a strong stance on this initiative. In this day and time there’s a vast majority of people from other generations that feel as though the internet is unsafe for young people and technology is corrupt with little to no room to inspire the next generation of innovators. Daraiha Greene -Google CS in Media Multicultural Strategy Lead- and her team are strongly changing the narrative of what Tech/ Computer Science for today’s rising generation. Young creatives were encouraged to embrace and develop their education, tech savvy abilities to impact the fashion industry!”
