“My passion for electronics began as a child, and since then, I’ve devoted my career to empowering technologists and entrepreneurs globally. Providing access to an education in technology can transform lives, and I joined the Advisory Board of Reskill Americans because I want to help give underrepresented minorities the opportunity to start exciting and fulfilling careers in technology. “
