While some doubted her abilities, others questioned about the quality of her coding. But intead of ignoring or bowing down to the online bullying, Scott had an epic comeback that is winning hearts online.

After her recent appearance at a Victoria’s Secret show, it was discovered that Scott can code in five languages and has done video tutorials for kids along with tech titans Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg on Code.org. One such compilation was put out on Instagram and many couldn’t wrap their head around it.


People commented on the post not only on Instagram, but also on Twitter.

Although Scott said she tries to keep away from negativity online, she decided to answer this one. Listing her achievements, she wrote, “Not trying to brag, I’m just stating facts in the hope that I’ll convince at least one negative commenter that programmers can come in all shapes, sizes, genders, races, etc. so they’ll think twice before doubting other women and girls they encounter in tech.”

Now, people are thanking her for speaking up.
