Nevertheless, Lesley Coded

She coded

I began/continue to code because...

It is my first love, and a continuous passion. Coding is therapy. Coding puts food on my table and wine in my glass. It's the best relationship I've ever had.

I recently overcame...

Imposter syndrome. No matter what you code today, if it's your best work you're a supertstar.

I want to brag about...

15 years as a coder! I built my first webpage when I was 9 years old and my relationship with code is still going strong.

My advice for allies to support women who code is....

Don't underestimate us. Don't make us work twice as hard to prove the same point. We all have strengths and weaknesses and none of those traits correspond with our gender.
