Place Of Birth
At the Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria, I play role of an educator and creative director. I have successfully found a way to blend my passions and expertise -- Spanish and technology -- to create innovative learning experiences for young women. I have transformed my classrooms into a digitalized, student-centered learning zone. The technology internship I initiated is a learning environment without borders where a group of girls with different technical expertise, such as film, graphic design, and code, work collaboratively to create and complete innovative projects.
Throughout this journey, we have created fun and inventive projects to ensure that other girls are exposed to various STEM opportunities as well. In the summer of 2015, we launched our first TYWLS Tech Explorers where we introduced code to 30 girls from the New York City area. In December of the same year, we introduced the Digital Dance, a project where student coders, dancers, graphic designers, and filmmakers collaborate to create a beautiful work of art. It has become my mission to inspire young women to immerse themselves in the STEM fields and therefore inspire other young women to the same.
