...I was a little bit like, ‘Is it a bad idea to participate in an underwear modeling shoot? "” says one of the models, Adda Birnir. Birnir is CEO and founder of Skillcrush , a website that aims to teach people—and especially women and girls—tech skills. “But it’s a feminist company…and I think it’s so important to support companies that are doing work like that.
