I’m 22 years old and I’m studying Electrical Engineering at The University of Texas at El Paso. I currently live in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and cross the border every day to go to school. I have always been passionate about how people don’t get to their maximum potential, not because they are not good enough, but because they are limited to information. In my university, I was able to meet extremely talented people who did not know what an internship was or why they needed to get one.
I’m a Forward Deployed Software Engineer at Palantir Technologies living in New York City. I majored in Computer Science at the University of Texas at El Paso and I was born and raised in Torreon, Mexico, where I lived for 19 years before moving to the US for college. I was truly shocked by the different opportunities available for students and I managed to get different jobs on-campus as a Webmaster, Web Developer and Mobile App Developer.
