My most recent achievement was…

Earning a position on the executive board of a youth-run non-profit as a web designer, then finding the courage to resign in order to prioritize my mental/physical health, other extracurriculars, and high school work.

Advocating for myself looks like…

Asking questions, sending reminders, being honest, listening to others, and...asking more questions. You'd be surprised by how far you can get by simply asking.

My biggest goal is…

To become an astronaut! Not just any astronaut (as if that exists xD), I want to be part of the first crew to step foot on Mars.

My advice for allies to support underrepresented folks who code is...

Have humility and be willing to listen.

Thanks so much for reading! I'm thrilled to participate for a second year in any way I can!
