About Us

Lil Miss Coder, founded by Morganne Johnston in 2015, is an organization aimed at empowering girls to excel in coding and technology. Motivated by her own experiences of feeling overshadowed in coding classes dominated by boys, Morganne sought to create a space where girls could thrive and find their passion for coding.

Supported by her programming teacher, Mrs. Cocanower, and her mother, Rachel Johnston, Morganne launched Lil Miss Coder with the mission to make coding more accessible and engaging for girls. The organization's activities are driven by student leaders from local high schools, providing mentorship and guidance to younger girls interested in coding.

Now in its ninth year, Lil Miss Coder has made significant strides in achieving its goals. By reaching out to over 300 students and nurturing the talents of nine future women leaders in technology, the organization has made a tangible impact in bridging the gender gap in the tech industry.

Looking ahead, Lil Miss Coder is committed to expanding its reach and empowering more girls to pursue careers in technology. With dedication and support from its founders, mentors, and volunteers, the organization aims to continue inspiring and equipping girls with the skills and confidence to succeed in the ever-evolving field of coding and technology.

"I found myself in a classroom full of boys who seem to enjoy the programming assignments.  I enjoyed programming, but felt the class assignments were not interesting to me as a girl.  So I started Lil Miss Coder to make coding fun for  girls. "

Eve Sikorski

​I attend Haas Hall Academy Bentonville, hold a 4.0 GPA, and am currently enrolled in programming 1. As of now I have basic knowledge in python, Java, JavaScript, and C#. In my free time I like to play tennis, draw, write, and play video games. I’m interested in the student leader position because it not only centers around a topic I’m interested in, computer programming, but it also allows me to work with kids. Since I babysit frequently I know how to work well with kids, specifically those within the age range of 6-13. I would get to do something I’m passionate about, working with students who I can adequately teach.
