Unlocking the Power of Community (With Snowball Wealth's Pamela Martinez)
Play • 36 min

"People are dealing with imposter syndrome, we're dealing with kind of a lot of these struggles, so having that extra encouragement and reminding them that they can do it, and they will do it if they put their minds to it, and if they're doing well, making sure you remind them of that and recognize them, that can really help propel those people."

For Pamela Martinez, the co-founder and CTO of Snowball Wealth, community is the fuel that drove her to her CTO role today, and it's why she's hyperfocused on the power of community at Snowball Wealth.

Moving from Mexico to Texas in elementary school, Pamela experienced a community shift early in life. Being one of the only girls in an engineering program at high school brought a whole new community experience, and then attending Stanford University for undergraduate school brought yet another new community. After spending some time at Microsoft, Pamela decided it was time to enter the startup world, join a new community, and empower the community of underrepresented individuals through financial assistance.

In this episode of the American Dream podcast, Pamela explains why she joined and almost left, the computer science community, why she and her co-founder started Snowball Wealth, and the early results Snowball Wealth is seeing by empowering individuals to take control of their finances.
