She first learned about Denver Tech For All, an organization that refurbishes computers and gives them away for free to families in need so kids and parents can thrive in the tech age.

“I saw kids there that didn’t have computers for education,” Foote said. “Seeing these kids not having computers, I was like, ‘How can you do this? I could never go through school without a computer.’”
