When supermodel Karlie Kloss launched her girls’ coding boot camp, Kode With Klossy, she wanted the next generation of women to have easier access to the world of computer science. Now, as Kode With Klossy has grown to have a national presence, girls across the country are learning to code — and looking to Kloss as a role model who’s not afraid to blaze her own trail. But Kloss has some role models of her own. Here, she talks about the women she looks to for inspiration.
