About Laila Shabir
Laila Shabir, founder of Girls Make Games and Learn District. Girls Make Games, a project by LearnDistrict teaches girls the ins and outs of game development and has one big goal: “To teach 1 million girls how to make games by 2020.” Laila Shabir has a history of achieving difficult goals. Growing up in UAE, her family couldn’t afford to send her to high school, so she searched the Internet for curriculum and homeschooled herself. Eventually she discovered that she could apply to universities in the United States and that there were programs for financial aid, and she ended up at MIT.
