088: Kaya Thomas

Kaya Thomas' star is on the rise! Maybe you've heard of her because of her popular iPhone app We Read Too. Or maybe you know her as one The Root's 2015 Young Futurists. Or maybe you've seen her on stage at Black Girls Rock being honored by First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama! It's all in a day's work for this Dartmouth computer science sophomore. We talked about her work and the importance of visibility for Black developers (specifically Black women), combating unsupportive company culture, and what it means to be supportive of diversity. There's no sign of things slowing down for Kaya, and I'm so excited to share this conversation with you. Kaya Thomas is a superstar!
