Bravery, thy name is woman

A simple story shared by Reshma Saujani of an assigned task during the code program course, two scenarios took place in front of the teacher:

  • A boy asked, “There’s something wrong with my code…”
  • A girl said, “There’s somthing wrong with me…”

What’s going on?

Girls are taught differently from boys and the input will influence the rest of the life of girls.

Saujani, on this TED occasion, reminds us, especially girls, of two principle messages:

  1. “I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection.”
  2. Be courageous: thy name is woman.
