“The atmosphere at Tijuana makes my shyness disappear due to the new ideas and suggestions are always welcomed.”

Opportunity. For me, this is the best word to describe what ITjuana means. They offer me the opportunity to prove to them and myself that I can tackle new challenges and become better either as a person and professional.
- Why software engineering?
Because I like the idea that if you can imagine a solution to any problem you can make it by yourself on a computer. You can make a system or application to help people in need, in terms of health or even economy.

- What would you tell to youth about getting involved in STEM?
