I work on how technology benefits people in sometimes surprising ways. For instance, how might technology help people find critical information after a natural disaster? How can technology make the world accessible to people with disabilities?


How can technology make it easier for people to obtain needed services from their governments, like health care and financial assistance? These are the types of problems I like to work on.

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

There are so many ways you can contribute the world of technology--as a creator, a designer, an engineer, a visionary, a researcher, or in any number of other roles.

And, because the apps and sites that are popular now will be replaced in just years with a whole new generation of tools, it's exciting to be involved in creating what the future might look like.
