Bio
As a Microsoft Software Engineer, my daily tasks include performing diagnostics on customer issues, attending meetings, debugging code, and performing analytics on error data. In performing diagnostics on customer issues, I get to talk to customers on forums and ask them relevant questions to then translate their issues in ways that developers can understand and work with.
As part of this job, I also need to collect logs that give engineering teams an insight into users problems. After that data is collected, I need to meet with several teams to determine how many people are being affected by a problem, as well as how log it will take to resolve that problem and put out a fix. I also get to work on tools that automate our daily lives to make it easier. A lot of these tools are for data analysis and data visualizations.

Why would you recommend exploring careers in science and technology to other Latina girls?
Science and technology can inspire and empower women to build their own careers in technology. I want to make sure that all Latinas have input and decision-making power in what this world should look like.
