i’m passionate about education.¬†

I’m a natural¬†helper and empath. I love teaching and feel most at home in the classroom.¬†

being bilingual helps me explain tech and design in simple terms. 

I pride myself in being able to talk to anyone.¬† I’ve been bilingual since I was¬†a kid. This skill helps¬†me easily relate and understand different points of views. This is one of my¬†favorite skills.¬†

i believe in designing for justice. 

I believe we have the right tools to design technology and organizations that help heal the world. I see my purpose closely tied to helping this happen.
