Bio

During my time in high school I have had the opportunities to design computer science curriculum for The Georgia Institute of Technology's summer camps and weekend workshops. During my time there I learned how to solder, create robots, and teach students ages eight to eighteen. I have also used these skills to start my own organization that teaches code to students after school named Call of the Code. Through this organization I have worked with teachers and students in the USA, UK, and India.

Bio

In the summer of 2016 I interned with Deloitte US LP with the Information Technology Services Department in Hermitage, TN. During my time there I learn about how to create Virtual Machines, HANA Servers, and make servers have High Availability. I strive to bring as many women and girls into computer science and help support them through achieve greater levels of knowledge.

Why would you recommend exploring careers in science and technology to other Latina girls?

Science and Technology holds endless possibilities for students and can be interwoven into any field. If you want to protect people you can go into cyber security, if you want to create new movies you can go into animations, and if you want to fill holes in the technology industry with new apps you could be a software engineer. Anything and every thing can tie back to computer science.
