"I met Dasani when she started the Girls Who Code chapter at Case Western Reserve University. It was really inspiring to see the impact of her ongoing efforts on high school students in the community, as well as Case Western’s volunteer facilitators. Her passion for the club is evident as she still keeps in touch with the CWRU chapter, even as an alum. That same year, Dasani encouraged me to attend my first hackathon (which I was pretty nervous about) and she invited me to join her team. Dasani helped me feel comfortable, included, and like an important member throughout the process. Lastly, Dasani has helped open my eyes to injustices and inequalities in tech through conversations, reading her blog, and attending a speech she presented for CWRU’s Hacker Society in 2019. She has also sparked my interest in learning about disability inclusion in technology. Throughout these experiences, and many more, Dasani has been friendly, resourceful, & encouraging to me as well as many others!
