My goal was to stress the lack of talented women, and mainly Hispanic women, that I have encountered in my education and career as an engineer and now as a teacher.

In addition to the conference, an article was published in the Huffington Post about my story and my reasons to switch from an engineering career to a teaching career.

    Hi Natalia,
    I recently saw your article in the Huffington Post, and wanted to let you know that we’re running an event with the U.N. Ambassador from El Salvador on November 18 about empowering women for sustainable development. You can check out more info here: http://www.stevens.edu/news/content/empowering-women-sustainable-development.

    Enjoyed the article, well done to you!
