Play • 30 min

“Have resilience, keep doing it, keep trying, no te rindas, and don’t give up”

That's the motto Beatris Gandica, Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, takes with her students at Nuevo Foundation - an organization founded to help get more underrepresented individuals introduced to tech earlier. With activities like coding workshops, virtual sessions, and speaker series, Beatris and the Nuevo Foundation show children that careers in tech can take many forms and are more accessible than they may think.

In this episode of the American Dream, Beatris shares how she herself got interested in the field of technology, why her experience led her to found the Nuevo Foundation, and why the foundation believes so strongly in hands-on learning.
