I am a Latina in tech, who was previously studying design, therefore I really enjoy bringing a visually pleasing aesthetic to everything I create. I am passionate about inclusion and diversity in tech, as well as about using my platform and knowledge to help my community and others. I enjoy yoga and try to promote a healthy, balanced lifestyle for myself and my programmer friends.
How did you get into tech?
I originally got into tech through my brother, who is a computer science student. Before choosing this path I had studied apparel design and always thought that would be my path. Three years later, I find myself back in school for computer science, and about to start the CS portion of my degree. So far I’m pretty much self-taught when it comes to programming. But I’m excited to begin my Computer Science courses and see how they connect with what I’ve been learning on my own.

What inspired you to start sharing your experiences on social media?
I originally started sharing my study notes on Instagram as a way to keep me motivated to study. I quickly discovered the programming community and began to share my journey of learning how to code. I started receiving really uplifting and encouraging messages of other programmers or students who were telling me I was inspiring them, so this gave me the desire to keep sharing my journey and the little things I’ve been learning along the way.
