I'm a software engineer on Google Maps by day, Diversity & Inclusion advocate by night.
My junior year at Stanford, I was sexually harassed throughout a technical internship. I wanted to drop out of tech altogether; instead, I started Women of Silicon Valley to celebrate all the amazing women in my life, especially the women of color, who kept me afloat.
I think a lot about Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) because I live the repercussions of their absence. As the child of Vietnamese refugees & Filipino immigrants, I think especially about neocolonialism in all the tech spaces I occupy. For my work in EDI, I have been named one of the BBC's 100 Inspiring & Innovative Women.
When I'm not coding by day or plotting the downfall of the patriarchy by night, I'm a certified Rover dog walker.
