Betta Lyon-Delsordo, rising senior at Big Sky High School in Missoula, has been working as an intern at GatherBoard this summer. Hoping to gain more skills and experience working for a tech start-up, Betta brought great enthusiasm and quickly became an asset to the company.
Not only has Betta mostly taught herself to code, she has also made a goal-setting app for Android called GoalBox and is working on building a personal website. She also started an afterschool program teaching middle school girls how to code, in an effort to help get more girls interested in careers in technology. Betta plans pursue a college degree in Computer Science.
“I think it is very important for women to be represented in computer science, because technology has the power to change the world, and women should be a part of it.”
Betta also loves reading science fiction, hiking, biking, and swing dancing.
