Feedback from the Judges:
Henry McKelvey 👏 Adjunct Professor, Computer Science at University of the Potomac — Emoti-Con Judge
This project has great potential on its merit and the creator(s) should be proud of their achievement. They show great promise.

As a woman in finance, I absolutely loved this concept! Sharing the story of an inspirational woman in finance can not only help her accomplishment be more well known, but also inspire others to learn more about finance! I would be interested to see additional stories of women that are also lesser known when you expand the project. I think this is such a great idea and tool for learning. Awesome work!
Liza Stark 👏 Sr Manager of Curriculum at Girls Who Code — Emoti-Con Judge
I love your project! It is vital to amplify stories of women who contribute to industries that have historically undervalued and excluded them. At Girls Who Code, we have an ongoing project that spotlights women and non-binary folks across industries and backgrounds related to computer science. It is a key resource in our curriculum toolkit that makes an impact and your project reminds me so much of them. Your research is wonderful! I like that you included interesting details of her life and contextualized them against the era (for example "many men believed that women were “too emotionally unstable” to deal with the stock market’s unpredictability”). Your website has a cohesive design and a nice historical color palette. Finally, I love your motivation for this project and would love to see you create more of these stories as you mention in Looking Forward. Really great job!
