Celebrity Apex Godmother Announced

Date: January 20, 2020

Celebrity Cruises has named Girls Who Code CEO and Founder Reshma Saujani the godmother of Celebrity Apex, our newest cruise ship that will be making its first voyage this spring.

Girls Who Code, a non-profit organization that seeks to close the gender gap in technology, was founded by Saujani back in 2012. Since then, Girls Who Code has helped educate over 185,000 girls through their innovative coding clubs, STEM summer programs, and college loops. College-aged Girls Who Code alumni are majoring in computer science and STEM-related fields at 15 times the national average. 

Aside from her educational organization, Saujani is also known for being the first Indian American woman to run for U.S. Congress, and for her viral TED talk, “Brave, Not Perfect,” which later became an international bestselling book.
