I am a Tech Community Builder.
When I was 10 I wanted to own my own business.
I work as a Community and Campaign Manager helping teach web literacy at Mozilla.
I am proud of surrounding myself with great mentors, organizations and communities who have all contributed to my personal and professional growth. I’ve always been eager to meet new people and get involved in various leadership, technology and education opportunities. I’ve learned a lot along the way!
The biggest obstacle I have faced was finding my voice and understanding where I can have the biggest impact. I want to help make the world a better place but knowing how was always a hard first step.
My advice to women is get involved! The only way we can change the future landscape of technology for women is to start now by empowering, teaching and learning from each other. There are countless ways in which we can work together to help inspire other females. Remember: if we want change, it’s up to us.
