I was raised all over the states and grew up knowing that the best quality a person can have is the ability to be kind while still being a badass in whatever passion she decides to follow.
I get really jazzed about the intersection between technology + social change, and my personal passion is getting more women of color (like me) in the tech industry. I exercise that vision through my everyday work at DoSomething.org - the largest organization for young people and social change, through my volunteer work with organizations like IRTS and Rockaway Rising and by traveling the country and speaking at tech conferences about my experience as a woman of color in a senior technology role.
The only thing I'm afraid of is not taking advantage of every opportunity life affords me. So you can find me doing lots of (cheap) fun things with my friends around NYC, or anywhere around the world - while still continuing to werk those career goals.
*And let's be real: I'm leaving out anything that makes me sound basic -- like how much I love to drink rosé , read gossip blogs and consume copious amount of reality TV.
