UP and the University of Nebraska at Omaha Help Girls Develop a Crush on IT

Posted April 6, 2015 10:00 a.m. CDT

Middle-school girls gather for Code Crush at the Peter Kiewit Institute on the University of Nebraska Omaha campus.

Like many teenagers, Hauwa Muibi didn't know what she might eventually do for a living, or even what she'd major in when she went to college. She loved math, and after reading some course catalogs, decided Computer Engineering sounded interesting. With her parents' blessing, 15-year-old Hauwa traveled more than 5,800 miles from Lagos, Nigeria, to Wilberforce University in Ohio to study.

There was culture shock, to be sure. And too much snow, she said. With the help of her mentor, Tjioe Kwan, Muibi learned to turn "ordinary math" into real-world application. She interned at Ohio State University and helped build a disaster relief system as an intern with the National Nuclear Security Administration, before graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering.
