Watch: Our interview with Lea

Something that very initially motivated me to get into computer science was the fact that many girls were doing it. I'd see other people doing it and think, well, why can't I do that? Why shouldn't I do that? I want to do it because no one else is doing it and it just stuck with me from there.
