11. Kimberly Blessing
“I started coding when I started school, at age 5. My school had a computer lab full of TRS-80 Color Computers, which all of the students were introduced to. For whatever reason, something clicked, and I was hooked!
Later, in high school, I took a break from computers and programming, but when I returned to college and took a computer science course, everything fell right back in to place. Nowadays, I tell people that, for me, there’s something natural about expressing myself in code.”
