If we only had 30 secs to get to know you. What would you want us to know?

We are committed to exposing underrepresented women of color to the tech industry by deconstructing the fallacious, societal assumption that women of color can only be successful in a narrow selection of careers. We aim to engage, inspire, and support underrepresented minority girls and women studying and/or pursuing careers in technology. We stand behind the affirmations of our ancestors that underrepresented does not mean under qualified, and we too can be a face of innovation.

Education: Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana

Awards/Recognitions:

1st Place Winners of the National Diversity Case Competition

National Black MBA Undergraduate Case Competition

Favorite Pastime:

We are both really into film and television, so we do a lot of binge watching. We are also huge trivia nerds, competing on a collegiate level and for fun!

Upcoming project(s):

We just launched our YouTube channel MC Tech Twins, and we have a lot of awesome videos coming soon. In addition, we have a few outreach programs in the works.
