UWCSEA Perspectives | 22 May 2019
Zara Khanna a techie, a traveler, and not just a girl coder, but also the founder of “G.R.E.A.T” (Girls Resilient, Enterprising and Amazing at Tech), the new coding club just launched at UWCSEA. She hopes to spread her love of coding and tech with other young girls who are budding techies like her.
Octa founder Zara Khanna and friends from the GREAT coding club of UWCSEA were invited to Singapore's ArtScience Museum for a special behind-the-scenes tour of the permanent Future World exhibit. It's permanent but always changing, so make sure you go as often as you can!
Octa’s Founder Zara Khanna and her awesome team won the UWC Microthon this morning. The team (all part of the G.R.E.A.T. club founded by Zara for girls who love coding) made an app that helps people track the food they eat so that they can stay healthy.
Congrats to Zara, Sophia and Ayana!
Huge huge news!! Octa’s Founder Zara has been the biggest follower of Karoli Hindriks, the Founder of Jobbatical. Karoli and Zara both believe that the world is a better place when people travel, are connected to each other and that having borders is not good. Zara met Karoli at the cool Jobbatical office in Tallinn, and Karoli agreed to officially become her mentor (Yay!).
We had the best time in Tallinn for the Robotex conference. Octa’s Founder Zara gave a speech on Octa and even participated in a panel with Taizo Son and Kirsi Ekberg on how to have more entrepreneurs (especially kids!) in the world. On the last day, it snowed and snowed, and we visited the Christmas market, which was awesome.
One of the best parts of going to Tallinn is visiting the Superheroes, the epic leadership program for girls, which is headquartered in Estonia. Zara is the Singaporean Ambassador of Superheroes and always loves to hang out with the other Big Sisters and discuss their projects, and to see the amazing Founder Eva Ponomarjov. Zara and Eva are planning some fun things for Superheroes in Singapore. Stay tuned!!
