Meet the awesome people behind our outreach activities.

Kanthi Narukonda

Chief of Operations

I joined CybHER because I believe in its mission. Young girls need encouragement and motivation to pursue cybersecurity and outreach activities accomplish this mission. If I can provide motivation and encouragement to at least one student and they pursue cybersecurity, I will have achieved CybHER’s mission.

I joined CybHER so that young girls can learn and get excited about all the different opportunities in cybersecurity and know that cybersecurity needs people from all backgrounds.

CybHER Leader

I joined CybHER because when I heard about their outreach to young girls I knew that this was something that I would have enjoyed having when I was in school. I’m really passionate about giving opportunities to students who might not have this type of information and equipment at their disposal.

CybHER Leader

I joined CybHER to encourage young girls to explore other opportunities they might not have thought of. Cyber and Computer Sciences is a male-dominant field and I want to help CybHER’s mission of merging the gap by educating young girls about cybersecurity.

CybHER Leader

I joined CybHER because I am passionate about encouraging and empowering young women to find careers in cyber-related fields. There were limited opportunities available for girls in my area to join something like CybHER when I was growing up.

CybHER Leader

I joined CybHER to try and make a difference for those around me and understand how I fit in the cybersecurity world. I’ve had so many great opportunities through this group to help me learn more about myself and the field I belong in. CybHER has taught me many amazing things and I hope to continue working with them for as long as I can.

I joined CybHER because I love the idea of empowering young ladies. Often it seems that ladies are told they need to fit into a certain mold and CybHER is an organization that tells them they don’t have to, that they can do something different, outside of the box. I love that.

Social Media Coordinator

I first heard about CybHER from my childhood best friend, Abby. She started working with CybHER a few years ago and would always tell me how amazing and empowering just being on the team was. I followed CybHER for a while and I loved everything they were doing. I felt informed and inspired by the outreach. It just seemed like a wonderful place with great people and a phenomenal purpose. When I found out that I could work here, I jumped at the opportunity. I love my job and everything that comes with it.
