Teaching Savvy Kids to Code with Sasha Ariel Alston on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 64

You don’t have to wait until you’ve graduated from college to find your audience and start making a difference. Sasha Ariel Alston learned that as a teenager, when the Kickstarter campaign for “Sasha Savvy Loves to Code,” a children’s book she wrote to empower girls of color studying the sciences, went viral and brought in more than three times its goal. In this episode of Hack the Process Sasha will tell us how her she juggles her writing and speaking career with being a full-time student, what she’s learned about using social media while building her brand, and why she thinks STEM schools need to focus more on teaching across different skills.
