Never stop exploring. Fail and start over.

What do you do?

I work in a mix of education and have a passion for tech and tech startups.

Why did you choose this field?

I wanted to do more for people around me and the tech field sounded good for me. I didn't have some models and these persons that could be models for me I met them in the college.
So... First I was trainer for IoT4Girls, a STEM course initiated by Codette, organization that I co-founded in 2016. Codette's mission is to empower girls and women to enter the tech field. After that, I wanted to work with kids and teach them about technology and what is in fact engineering so ... I was trainer for groups of kids 5 to 14 years old and I was teaching them robotics and programming.
In present, I'm working in university and I have the same mission to contribute to a better future.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I wish that I had some role models in high school and helped me to choose and find the right way for tech.

Why do you love working in STEM?

It's all about exploring technology with all engineering and math. I really believe that ... The sky is the limit.

Best advice for next generation?

Never stop exploring. Fail and start over.
