I grew up with a love for math and solving puzzles. Find the parts; put them together. Recognize the pattern; apply the model. I would later find out that the wonderful world of computing had a place just for me. But, I almost fell through the cracks of a system that did not highlight the diversity of careers, opportunities, and faces that STEM had to offer. So, it’s past time to fix the system. I am determined to be a part of the solution.
The beauty of the field is that it’s never too early (or too late) to start learning!
