Karlie Kloss is an American supermodel, 40-time Vogue cover girl, entrepreneur and philanthropist.

Raised in St. Louis, Karlie was discovered at a local charity fashion show in 2006. After walking in her first show for Calvin Klein, Karlie’s fashion career quickly took off with 64 shows booked her first full fashion week season. Since then, Karlie has walked for top designers including Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Versace, among others. A global brand ambassador for Estee Lauder, Karlie has also starred in several major international campaigns with brands that include adidas, Versace, Dior, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera and Swarovski.

Outside of modeling, Karlie’s passion for technology led her to take her first coding class in 2014. Inspired by code’s creativity and endless possibility, Karlie launched Kode With Klossy in 2015 to empower girls to learn to code and become leaders in tech. Now in its fourth year, the organization hosts free two-week summer coding camps where girls aged 13 to 18 explore concepts in front-end and back-end software engineering. By the end of camp, scholars build their own app or website using programming languages including Ruby, Javascript, HTML, CSS, and beginning in 2018, Swift.

In 2018, Kode With Klossy awarded 1,000 scholarships to 50 free coding camps for young women in 25 cities, nearly quadrupling its reach from 2017. Kode With Klossy also partnered with Teach For America to hire and recruit instructors, who were trained in Kode With Klossy’s curriculum to teach the summer camps. Karlie was recognized on the TIME 100 list for her philanthropic work as the founder of Kode With Klossy, and was featured on the covers of Fast Company and Forbes for her work to scale the organization.
