Technical Account Manager, Microsoft
Feel the fear and do it anyway.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
Lead Microsoft Clients to Digital Transformation
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I knew I wanted to be involved with technology, but I did not want to code 24/7 (I realized this after taking a programming class in high school). I loved math in school and solving problems and I decided to study Industrial and Systems Engineering. After getting internships in different industries and different roles, I knew I wanted to be in Technology. Thanks to peer metors, organizations like SHPE & SWE, support from my family and friends, I made it! Tech is the fastest evolving industry. I am now part of the change of the actualizations of old processes, technologies, and cultures.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
Have my "dream job" in my dream company after my BS & MS, traveled 16 countries and have my own Ted talk at 23!!
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
The complex challenges that make me grow everyday. Experiencing the fast changes as we strive to adapt to a better society.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY. We need your unique light, talents and way of thinking in STEM. Just by being you, you will revolutionize the field.
