Angel deep in conversation during Match Day.

Let’s dive deeper…

Q: What did you want to be when you were growing up?

I’ve always wanted to be a network engineer. I wanted to design and implement a network system that would be efficient and cost effective for a company.

Q: What drew you to working with computers and technology?

I am interested in working with computers and technology because they are always evolving. I like the constant change because it keeps technology new and interesting.

Q: How do you want to change the world? How do you want to change the tech scene?

I would like everyone to have and to show love towards each other. I would like to change the tech scene by making technologies, and the training on using technologies, affordable and accessible to everyone.

Q: Any fun facts you’d like to share?

I’ve driven up Mount Washington Auto Road and reached New England’s highest peak!

Q: Why is diversity important to you?

Diversity is important because it helps me gain a better understanding of those who do not have the same background as me. As a result, I’m exposed to new things that I might never have imagined. Additionally, diversity broadens my world views.


Angel started at Vertex on May 30th. Stay tuned for Thursday’s final issue of our “Meet Our Cohort” series! ICYMI, meet the interns we’ve already introduced!
