@samanthabretous: OMG, y’all! I won a scholarship to attend the @reactjs conf. Interested in helping me get there? #diversityintech

For those who do not know me, my name is Samantha. I am a full stack developement fellow at Coalition for Queens Access Code program. This program helps under represented minorities join the tech workforce, with a intensive 10 month long training period. Recently, I received an amazing opportunity to attend this year’s React Conference, in Santa Clara, California, through a scholarship. Not only is this an opportunity to meet wonderful people in the industry, but to help advance my career during my job search.

Unfortunately, after almost seven months in the program, I find that I do not quite have enough to cover the travel costs of the cross-country flight. Thankfully my hotel was covered by the scholarship, as well as the entrance fee. The React conference is a wonderful opportunity and I would hate to miss it because of a plane ticket.

I’m thrilled to attend the conference, because it will help me invest in my knowledge portfolio. Not only that, I’m excited to immerse myself around people in the tech industry who believe in the future of React just like myself. But most importantly, I will be able to bring the topics that I will learn, back to my class and help educate my peers. The React conference will be a great an opportunity to mature as a developer.

Feel free to check out my github, twitter and a recent hackathon project to see the great work I am doing.
