I’m about to accept an offer for Twilio!!! Thank you for the introduction at ColorStack’s Stacked up Summit! I have also received other offers from: Wells Fargo, Discover, Asurion, and Bank of America! But Twilio will win out due to being in Irvine or Portland and giving me a chance to go home for the summer in either case (family in both states). I can’t believe it!

AHHHHHH. This year has truly been a journey. I came into college as a lost freshman who didn’t think she could survive the semester and now I’ve gotten offers from FBU, Google STEP, AND Microsoft Explore. This is so crazy and I feel so blessed to have this community that has embraced, supported and uplifted me greatly. Thank you so much Colorstack and AHHHHH!

I’ve been selected to speak on a SECOND intern panel for IBM! 🗣 This is after receiving offers for different positions within the company: hardware developer and firmware engineer 😤 I want to thank ColorStack for getting me here, I’d never thought that I’d be able to receive offers Nuro, IBM, and Mathworks, nor final rounds with Bloomberg, Microsoft, Deloitte, and Google with no family or industry connections, so thank you for giving me the resources and confidence to thrive in tech as a first generation woman of color.
