Honored to be featured onΒ GitHub‘sΒ ReadME Project, where I opened up (pun intended) about my journey into open source! πŸ˜ΈπŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ’»πŸ› 

I cover the following topics:

✦ how I got into the tech industry

✦ my open source work with organizations like Techqueria and freeCodeCamp

✦ the importance of having more Latinx representation in tech

✦ navigating my identity as a Latina in open source

✦ leaning on the community to build sustainable projects

But more importantly, my Corgis Luna & SueΓ±o make an appearance at the end. 🐾 πŸ˜‚

Big shout out to Genny Davila. She gave me one of the most positive photography experiences I’ve ever had.
