Bukola said: “Somi is a curious, bright, humorous, and beautiful young girl who has a natural interest in learning computer programming concepts from her mom.

“Her inquisitive nature allows her to connect what she’s learning with real-life experiences. Somi’s persona was created with the intent that young learners would find her relatable and want her as a friend.”
