Karlie Kloss is a model, baker, philanthropist, NYU student, Taylor Swift’s BFF, and YouTube blogger. But maybe the most important thing she has done recently was partner with the Flatiron School in New York — which trains people in web and mobile development — to fund 20 scholarships for pre-college young women between the ages of 13 and 18. The #KodeWithKarlie scholarship recipients attend a summer coding program designed to teach them the basics of computer programming and app development. According to Cosmo, Karlie herself participated in the course last summer and has since continued her education there, becoming a vocal advocate for women in coding.
“Over the last year, I started taking coding classes and realized how creative coding truly is. Code is only going to continue to play a major role in defining our future. I think it’s crucial that young women learn to code as early as possible to ensure that we have a voice and a stake in what the world looks like.”
