Mentoring

I provide mentoring calls for aspiring software engineers, early-stage startup founders, Latinx professionals in tech and more.

Hi there! 👋🏽

I’m so glad you’re interested in getting mentored by me.

I limit these calls to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) folks in tech to pay it forward to the community I want to support the most.

Below is a brief overview of what to expect in a 1:1 mentoring call with me.

Feel free to contact me if you want to reach out about other opportunities (e.g., speaking, website development, blogging, user research interviews, etc.).

What can you ask me?

You can talk to me about anything you’re interested in learning more about.

I’m excited to provide you with advice and help out however I can.

Below are examples of topics I’ve talked with folks about before:

  • Software engineering career advice and resources
    • Differentiating yourself
    • Setting yourself up for success during promotion cycles
    • Self-advocacy
    • Avoiding glue work as a woman engineer
    • Breaking into the tech industry with a non-tech background as a software engineering bootcamp grad
    • How to get started in open source
  • Diversity and inclusion in tech
    • recruiting strategies for hiring underrepresented groups
    • Latinx ERG advice and resources
  • Latinx in tech
    • the importance of hiring more Latinx in tech
    • the current state of Latinx in tech
    • my leadership work with Techqueria, the largest global community of Latinx professionals in tech
  • Frontend web development
    • TypeScript, Progressive Web Apps, Static Site Generators, Web Performance, Internationalization vs. Localization, Accessibility

30-Minute Mentoring Call for BIPOC Folks in Tech

$25

I’ll share advice on achieving your software engineering career goals and answer any questions you may have.

Can’t afford to pay?

I completely understand you may not be in a position to pay for a 1:1 call right now.

What I can offer you instead is the ability to ask me any specific questions through GitHub.
