Our Team

Swetha Prabakaran

Founder and CEO

Before her freshman year of high school, Swetha had no idea what Computer Science entailed and never imagined that one day she’d be teaching kids to code. However, she took a Java class in 9th grade and hasn’t looked back since.
Currently a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), Swetha takes application development courses and works in her school’s Mobile and Web Application Development Laboratory. She hopes to major in Computer Science in college. She loves using technology to benefit the community, and loves inspiring students to do the same even more!
Swetha is an active member of her school's Model UN Team and chapter of FBLA, and is also a member of the swim and dive team. She has been learning Bharathanatyam, a form of classical South Indian dance, for more than half of her life. In her free time, Swetha loves listening to music, reading, baking, and making really bad puns.

Shannon Yan

West Coast Director

Born in the heart of Silicon Valley, Shannon Yan was always surrounded by computer science but didn’t realize her passion for it until her sophomore year of high school when she took an Intro to Computing class. Inspired by influential women such as Sheryl Sandberg and Reshma Saujani, she quickly dove into the field and started coding her own projects whenever she had the chance. What fascinates her most about programming is that anyone who learns to code instantly has the opportunity to create a positive change in the world as well as gains the ability to enable and empower others. As the West Coast Director, she hopes to pay it forward by enabling other girls her age to discover their love for coding and in the process better their communities as well. In the near future, Shannon hopes to start her own tech company in Silicon Valley geared towards providing internet and computer access to people in developing countries and to show young women that anyone can be a CEO. In her free time, Shannon loves kickboxing, reading self-help novels, dancing to her favorite Taylor Swift songs, competing in SWAT competitions, and serving as captain of her high school’s cheerleading team!

Kimberly Do

Director of Design

Kimberly Do is a sophomore at her school's International Baccalaureate Program. In middle school, she self-studied HTML and CSS as she began to nurture her growing fascination for computer science. Eventually, as she entered high school, she advocated for computer science programs at her school, joined science, robotics, and math clubs, and won an Affiliate Award from the NCWIT. These days, she dabbles in web design and illustration whenever she isn't busy with a variety of club activities.

Laura Sizemore

East Coast Director

Until high school, Laura Sizemore thought she would never be interested in Computer Science. That all changed her freshman year when she took the JavaScript course on Khan Academy and fell in love with programming. Currently a senior at Lake Braddock Secondary School, she has completed the AP Computer Science A class, is one of the two officers of her school’s programming club, is a 2015 and 2016 #Include Fellow, and is a National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT) Aspirations in Computing Regional Runner Up. Laura realizes how blessed she is to learn computer science,and wants to create opportunities for others to become as passionate about coding as she is. Through her work in Everybody Code Now!, she works to make that goal a reality. In her free time, she is performing in her school’s color guard, acting for her school’s theater, and spending time with friends.
