Tell us about your journey into tech?
My journey in tech started early in life. In high school, my passion for computers was amplified when my family purchased a gateway 2000 🙂 I felt like the outlier because of my desire to do something outside of the “normal”. But to be honest, majoring in Computer Science and building a career in tech has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding things in my life.
How do you feel you have made a difference in what you do?
At every stage in my career, I have met women who desired to build careers in tech. I would like to believe that my shared passion motivated them all to continue on their journey. I feel strongly that this my journey is not just about the tech, it’s about people.
What would you say is your biggest achievement?
My greatest accomplishment is staying the course and building bridges for others to bring their best self to what they do. Seeing others succeed and growing something bigger than just my career is a great achievement.
How do you think people can go about making a difference, in regards to spreading awareness of Black Women in tech?
Sharing our journey with others, including the mistakes, is what brings awareness to the women working in tech.
