Software engineer and YouTuber
Hometown: Oakland, California
Maya Bello has set out to teach the world to code. The San Francisco-based software engineer uses YouTube, TikTok and Instagram to share coding tutorials and tech content with her followers. Furthermore, she’s used her platform to share the racism she’s encountered as a Black woman in tech, where women of color are vastly underrepresented. However, her passion for the industry is clear. She believes anyone can learn to code and hopes her videos can inspire and encourage others to do so.
