Before founding Girls Who Code, a nonprofit that has served 450,000 girls and has reached 500 million people in the U.S., Reshma Saujani went through a seemingly endless stream of rejection and failure. In our conversation, Reshma talks about growing up in the midwest as the daughter of refugee parents from Uganda, her valiant 3 time attempt to get into Yale, and how having multiple miscarriages made her question her worth as a woman. On the show, Reshma also tells us about her failed aspirations in politics (running for Congress in 2010) and how this chapter in her life was the impetus for making an impact in another arena — closing the gender gap in technology. -- Check out quick, tasty, and healthy foods at Real Good Foods!
