Karlie Kloss believes ''more women and girls'' are needed in the technology industry.
The 25-year-old model set up her non-profit organisation Kode with Klossy in 2015, which sees her run coding camps for people aged 15 to 18 years old, because she wanted to ''understand'' the business and educate other people about a topic ''most of the world'' does not know as she believes females need to be more involved in this sector.
Speaking to Business of Fashion, she said: ''I wanted to understand what they knew that I didn't and what most of the world doesn't.
''If you can understand how things work and how they are built, you can build anything yourself.
''Our brains are just wired differently, we problem solve differently. And ultimately, that's what code is: it's creative problem-solving. Having more women and girls in the conversation, at the table when you are building algorithms, when you are problem-solving -- we are going to come up with a different way to get to the answer.''
And the Victoria's Secret star is proud of her initiative because she thinks it is ''really empowering'' for women.
She explained: ''We create the space and give the access to the learning for the girls, but knowledge is power and I think this is a really empowering thing for these young women.
''There are so many ways that technology can create more efficiency in our industry.
''It's amazing to see the impact that we've been able to have on the girls who have been in our camps and in our communities. They change the way that they think about themselves and [what they think] they are capable of. That confidence factor is key.''
