I am a junior from Los Angeles, CA. I am closely connected to my Mexican heritage, and I tutor low-income and homeless students within the Latinx community. Through the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, I teach workshops and speak to fellow students about software development and my experiences in the startup technology arena. I plan to blend my dual passions for technology and literature to create a platform to amplify the diverse voices of my generation on political, social and cultural issues. My other passions include reading contemporary Mexican literature and practicing Japanese calligraphy.
