“Kode with Klossy has the power to change our generation and uplift girls that have never seen a path for themselves in technology. Our generation is so empathetic and aware of the world around us, yet we often don't know how to create tangible change in our communities.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Neha saw millions of people becoming infected in her community and around the world. It didn’t seem right to her that a misunderstanding of social distance could cost someone their life. She created SixFeetApart – a wearable social-distancing device and app that uses the latest developments in ultrasonic technology to alert users when approaching people cross CDC's guidelines of a 6-foot distance. Her work was recognized by the late Princess Diana and the Royal Family through the Diana Award, as well as by President Biden through the National Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award. She was also named a 2021 Global Teen Leader, representing the United States for her innovations and outreach. Recently, she was named WomenTech Network's Rising Star in STEAM of the Year, received the Daily Points of Light Award from former President H.W. Bush, and named on the Future Minds Network's 25 Under 25 List. She interned at NASA, partners with the World Economic Forum as part of the GEneration AI Youth Council on Ethical AI. She also recently released her debut book, “Innovation for Everyone: Solving Real-World Problems with STEM.”
“Kode With Klossy gives you more than just the opportunity to learn for free, but they give you a supportive environment to do so. I might not remember every single function I learned, but I now have friends from around the world who share my passion for STEAM and celebrate my accomplishments.”
Outside of Kode With Klossy, Luiza founded a nonprofit organization, MC² (which stands for Girls in STEAM in Portuguese), to bridge the gender gap in STEAM and connect girls to accomplished women in the field. Since May 2020 they have organized two free virtual STEAM programs reaching 1,100+ Brazilian public middle-school girls. Due to her work with MC² she was awarded the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Brazil, being selected from a 2,125 applicant pool.

“Programs like Kode With Klossy can be a powerful pivoting point in students’ lives. Even in well-funded public schools, women are not given the environment and support system they need to confidently enter spaces where they have traditionally not been represented or welcome. Programs like KWK are critical in supplementing traditional forms of education because they provide smaller spaces and communities made for women to thrive and learn.”
Alumni sisters Kyara &Valeria Torres-Olivares learned about the inequities in STEAM through their Kode With Klossy experience. To lessen these unwelcoming experiences minority students in STEAM faced in our community, they founded Code Equal in 2017, a non-profit that provides underrepresented students the opportunity, support, and knowledge they need to succeed. They started teaching just two classes at their local public library. The response was incredible, and courses eventually expanded into the school year. They focus on making their environments a place and on creating non-traditional educational material aids in engaging and creating excitement.
