Josefa's Story My initial interest in coding was sparked by a combination of factors that are closely aligned with my commitment to increasing the representation of women in male-dominated fields in Chile and LATAM. As I witnessed the gender disparities in technology-related sectors and recognized the need to break the stereotype that women are incapable of excelling in these areas, I became motivated to challenge these norms and create a positive change. My fascination with fields that encompass Data Science further fueled my interest in coding. The potential of using data to drive insights, solve complex problems, and make informed decisions resonated deeply with me. I saw coding as the gateway to unlocking these possibilities and contributing to a more inclusive and diverse technological landscape. In a rapidly evolving world that is constantly introducing new technologies, I strongly believe in the value of continuous learning. The field of coding exemplifies this need for adaptability and growth. Learning to code not only empowers me to actively participate in technological advancements but also equips me with the tools to navigate a tech-driven society effectively. The desire to challenge preconceived notions, advocate for gender equality, delve into the captivating realm of Data Science, and embrace lifelong learning converged to ignite my interest in coding. With each line of code I write and each new concept I grasp, I am taking meaningful steps towards breaking barriers, shattering stereotypes, and contributing to a more equitable and innovative future in Chile, LATAM, and beyond.

🤹‍♀️ Josefa's Hobbies

My hobbies are makeup (I'm a makeup artist in my spare time), learning new languages (I speak Spanish, English and German... and I've noticed that programming is adding more languages to my knowledge so that may also be a reason why. I'm interested in this field), cooking, and reading (I started reading this year and I discovered a great world in literature!!... my goal is to read 12 books this year and I've been reading for 5, but let's go!)
