Just like your favorite celebs, Cambio now has its own before and after pics. Since 2010, Cambio has been covering all of the latest entertainment news and gossip - from who's hooking up to who's most GIF-worthy. But like many Hollywood stars, we knew we were destined for even bigger things. So in the spring of 2014 we decided to do something about it.
We reached out to Girls Who Code, an organization with big dreams of its own (like exposing 1 million young women to computer science by 2020) to help us re-imagine and rebuild Cambio - as a lab for real girls to create a site they'd want to visit every day, one that truly reflects their varied interests and passions. In June, Michelle, Roxy, Natasha, Lily and Nikki (above, from left), all grads of GWC, moved into AOL's offices to take up the challenge. The result: a new site with topics chosen by girls and a bigger vision.
What is Cambio?
The new Cambio is a platform that not only entertains but empowers young women to build anything they want to build and be anything they want to be. It features tech, fashion, beauty, inspiration AND Taylor Swift - and anything else young women are passionate about. The GWC interns also built two unique new products for the site - Celebspiration, which allows users to create and share inspirational celebrity memes, and the Col[lab], a blogger network that enables girls everywhere to develop their voice on Cambio.
What is #BUILTBYGIRLS?
Our long-term mission is to inspire young women everywhere to see themselves as creators - to believe they can build a bigger and better world. Whether their interests lie in coding and science, or fashion, design and music, we want them to take advantage of technology to fuel their passions and drive their success.
