    For my history final project last semester, we were instructed to give a speech on an influential figure in American history. I had heard that Grace Hopper was one of the early figures in computer science, so I decided to choose her. As I started researching, I learned that she not only brought forth the idea of a compiler, but truly revolutionized computer science and its scope, and that she is the reason we have programmer friendly languages and user friendly devices. Her story is truly inspiring, especially the fact that she, a woman in the early 1900s, gained so much respect and admiration for her monumental work. She demonstrates that women can make important contributions in the tech field as well.
