A headshot of Angélica M. Vega Aponte.My name is Angélica and I am a senior majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Cinema Studies at American University. Growing up in Ponce, Puerto Rico, I was introduced into the world of STEM at an early age after being picked amongst my elementary class in Roman Baldorioty to compete in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the FIRST Lego League. This experience sparked a new-found passion in me for technology where I’ve continued to develop new coding and technological skills all while promoting and trying my best to bridge the gap for Women in STEM, especially Minority Women. As part of my dream, my hope is to be able to create a platform for all Minority Women in STEM.
