Angie is a queer Latinx woman who is taking on the world, one issue at a time. In spring 2018, she graduated from New York University with dual B.S. degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering and then moved across the county to begin a job as a Reliability Engineer at Northrop Grumman. A first generation college student who’s navigated a variety of challenges, Angie describes herself as “really passionate” about diversity and inclusion, social justice, and community outreach. She is an alumnus of the Point Foundation and INROADS, as well as a former NACME scholar. Angie volunteers as an Admissions Director for the Engineering Conference of Out for Undergrad (O4U), and she loves CrossFit, hiking, and visiting her friends and family in New York.

For the past two years, as a precursor to our annual oSTEM conference, we’ve offered a Hackathon for our technology-focused members to come together and have fun, make new friends, and work on projects for the LGBTQ+ community. This year we saw doubled member participation, had an amazing local partner in Houston who offered data sets to work on, and shipped some amazing products as a result!
