Aleisha Nelson


Creative Developer in the San Francisco Bay Area

Art & Design

Two years ago I founded my own business, Art By Aleisha, to keep my creative side in check. When I'm not working or studying, I'm working on new art products to sell...or hang up on my own walls!

Computer Science

I'm currently a senior computer science major at Santa Clara University. I will also be completing an extra year of school to earn a masters in computer engineering (graduating 2018).

Debugging the Gender Gap

I'm very passionate about promoting women in tech so that's why I've chosen to volunteer 3-4 hours a week as a Girls Who Code club facilitator for the 2016-2017 school year.

Involvement on Campus

University Honors Program

As a member of the Santa Clara University Honors Program I've been able to gain insight from various faculty members, take rigorous courses, and work on a senior thesis.

SCU Web Specialist

During the school year, I work for the SCU Alumni Association keeping their section of the university website up to date and looking fresh.

Cape Town Study Abroad

As a junior I took advantage of the opportunity to study abroad and I chose to explore Cape Town, South Africa - Read more about my experience HERE!
