Stellar student receives inaugural Women in Computing Science Alumni Award

For computing science student Bria Kindersley, receiving the inaugural Women in Computing Science (WiCS) Alumni Award not only recognizes her outstanding achievements, it also sends an important message to other young women in the technology industry.

“I think it’s a wonderful way to tell women in computing science how much they are appreciated,” says Kindersley, former president of SFU’s WiCS student society.

“For me, receiving it was a lovely acknowledgement of all the work I’ve put in, both supporting women in computing science and in my academics.”

The scholarship, established by SFU alumnae Kate Tsoukalas and Brittany Zenger, will be awarded every year to an outstanding female student who is also an active WiCS student society member.
