I have been incredibly fortunate in life to be able to live within two amazing countries and experience cultural immersion. I was born in Peru and grew up being part of an incredibly vibrant culture. In 2011 I emigrated to the United States, a land where I found a bounty of possibilities and opportunity that continue to shape me into the person I am today. I was fortunate to be accepted as a computer science major at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell; following the path to become what I always wanted since I was a child.
This was always seen as odd because I am a women and most people considered this field to be male dominated. I grew up surrounded by women but even then I never wavered from my passion. All I wanted was to be a great engineer just like my father. He is my biggest influence; always excited about technology and bringing home the latest devices we could afford living in Peru and teaching me about them. Technology is his passion, and through him, it became mine as well.
I graduated in May 2015 with an optimistic demeanor that I would find my true path. I became a proud American citizen in June 2015 and got my first job at Syntel. I have never been happier. I used to hear my dad say "I do what I love, and I love what I do" and now I finally understand how good it is to wake up in the morning and go out to accomplish my dreams while expanding my experience in the one true field I am passionate about. I love coding because it challenges me and allows my creativity to prosper.

As an immigrant I got to the US with a bag full of clothes and dreams
