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.
