Karina won the Apple WWDC Scholarship – for the third year in a row! ✨

In her own words:

“I’m a 21 years old Brazilian Computer Engineering student, passionate about code and design! Apple every year launches a worldwide competition for students so they can attend WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) in California. This year my app was about Nancy Grace Roman, the first woman to hold an executive position at Nasa and responsible for launching Hubble into space! I wanted to develop a project that would inspire girls to pursue STEM, and also inspire them to participate in this type of competitions! It’s my third year winning this scholarship, and I’d love to see more girls there! <3 The conference will be in the first week of June! It’s so close and I’m so excited!”
