Bio
Amelia Coomber is a senior computer science major at the University of Denver and president of the DU computer science club. She has struggled with ADHD and a form of dyslexia that made her feel less than able to be successful in the future, especially when it came to the sciences. It wasn’t until winter quarter of freshman year that she gave CS a try and a professor turned her life around. For the first time she felt smart, people were impressed with what she was doing, and everything sheI had been told, such as “don’t switch to CS you won’t make it, it’s too hard especially if you don’t have a CS background” was wrong! IT has been the best decision I have ever made in my life. She is nearly done with her CS major and has even started a company. Her company, Boobi Butter, is a subscription box company that empowers women with the tools and resources they need to take control of their breast health and perform routine self exams.
