Alexandra Roumeliotis, a 17-year-old high-school senior from San Francisco, California, is working to inspire girls and minorities in computer science through her organization, The Coding League, which hosts engaging workshops across the globe.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA РEach year, there are more than 500,000 computer science jobs posted but only 43,000 Americans graduate with a Computer Science degree annualy. Tech giants like Google, Facebook and Apple hire people from overseas to meet their demands for qualified tech workers through the H1B visa program and others.
