About Luna Alvarez

Hey there! I'm Luna, a Latina-American studying computer science.

I was raised in the Inland Empire of Southern California with my Mother, Father, an older Brother, and an assortment of animals as pets.

Growing up I loved reading and writing, frequently being awarded for my original pieces; non-fiction as well as poetry. Before moving from my hometown, I co-hosted a poetry night called RUPO in Riverside, California. You can also see me featured in the Seattle Times in this article: http://www.seattletimes.com/pacific-nw-magazine/as-our-world-grows-more-diverse-local-tech-companies-are-still-mostly-white-and-male/

I specifically enjoyed History and English topics in primary school studies, not finding my passion for computer science until later in my life. I am devoted to helping other woman and girls find their passion in STEM, and volunteer with my local ChickTech office as a communications manager.

I currently live in Bellevue, Washington with my pug, Olive. My ultimate goal is to receive a Bachelor's of Computer Science. I have supported myself partially since the age of 15, and completely since the age of 18. Naturally, attending college has been a difficult idea for me but I'm excited about making it a reality!

I hope to connect with other like-minded driven individuals of all backgrounds and those of the same Latinx background as myself.
Thanks for stopping by and learning a bit about me!
