Session: How to build your own journey to succeed in tech

In this presentation I will talk about my learnings in my tech journey, how I became DevOps Engineer at 23, how I have coped with being a young Mexican woman in this STEM world that is mainly ruled by white men, how I have overcome obstacles and ignored stereotypes and how you can do it too with some tips and advice to make your career path easier.
