Ms. Ifrah Jaffri received her Bachelor of Engineering degree from NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi, Pakistan in 2014 and Master's in applied sciences degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 2020. Ifrah is a passionate educator by profession and has nearly 8 years of STEM teaching experience. She is always excited about working with kids, especially about girls getting into coding and STEM-related careers. She has very much enjoyed her engineering career and hopes that with her STEM teaching, she can encourage more kids to learn and enjoy computer science and engineering.
The idea of creating an easy, visual way of learning the basics of computer science came to her when her young cousins were in elementary school. She noticed that like many other kids their age, they were not keen on technology-related matters. The school curriculum lacked a structured discipline for teaching computer science-related topics unlike other subjects such as Math, Science, or History.
