Hi, I’m Katie! I’m going into 8th grade this fall, and I've been with ORCSGirls for 3 years. I do volunteer work with ORCSGirls all the time; it's super fun. I love everything about computers, coding, and the stars and planets. I want to work for NASA when I grow up, building technology to go to Mars! Fun fact: I absolutely love horses :)

Hi there, I’m Ada! I’ve been with ORCSGirls for 3 years and taught a class about the Swift programming language. I’m going into 8th grade this year, and my goal is to have a career that involves mathematics and computer science. When I’m not coding, my favorite hobby is reading with a hot cup of tea :)

Hey there, awesome campers! I’m Alisha, your enthusiastic counsellor from the United Arab Emirates. I’m thrilled to embark on this virtual adventure with all of you using CoSpaces! As a passionate VR and coding enthusiast, I can’t wait to share my knowledge and experiences with you. Let’s explore amazing worlds, create captivating stories, and forge lasting friendships during this camp. See you all in the virtual realm!

Grace - Piper, Kelly, Dhruvi, Navya

Hello all! I’m Grace (or Gamora). I’m a rising senior at Farragut High School. Over this year, I have been exposed to coding like I was never before. A lot of that goes to all the events ORCSGirls has hosted and co-hosted, including their classes, the CoSpaces competition, and Scratch competition. I really hope to help each one of you discover (or possibly rediscover) how amazing and fun technology can be! :D

Hey! I’m Kristen, and I’m a rising 8th grader. I have been with ORCSGirls for 3 years and have participated and volunteered at many of the classes/camps. I love academics, coding, singing, hanging out with my friends, and hiking. I enjoy using CoSpaces, and I can’t wait to be a counselor for this camp! I am so excited to help you guys learn and I know you are going to have so much fun!

Hey, y’all! I’m Thuviksa, a rising 7th grader at Westview Hills Middle School in Illinois. I’ve been with ORCSGirls for a little more than 2 years and have participated and/or volunteered in many of their classes. CoSpaces is one of my favorite coding platforms and I love Virtual Reality. It’s an extremely intriguing topic and I can’t wait to share it with y’all by being a counselor for this camp! See y’all soon!
