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

If you want to be creative, think BIG, be a step ahead of any other industry, shape the future, TECH is your answer. All you need is the will and effort to get there. Nothing else should stop you.

I come from a very small town 2 hours away from Lima, Peru where there was no internet in houses. Now I'm working at Google, the biggest tech company in the world. I don't think I was lucky, I think I was fortunate to find the right mentors for me who helped to make good decisions. I can be that mentor for you.
