empowering creators through technology
 

Hi there,

I'm Rebecca Garcia.

I was just a girl who wanted to code;

now I teach how to create your

meaningful career in technology

I believe in technology as a tool for change.

When I was little I didn't see anyone else like me...

when I was 12, I started teaching myself to code, I immersed myself in a vibrant digital game world, Neopets.

I'd spend late nights, copying and pasting HTML code, building websites from scratch.

One of my first websites was a tutorial site where other girls could learn from my copy and paste tutorials.

My Career In Tech

I took a big leap and became a Developer at a non-profit and shortly after decided to start my own. I found my passion teaching kids to code.

After a few years I knew I wanted to be a part of the 'bigger picture' of creating things in tech; I became a Product Manager.

In my spare time, I love doing yoga, barre, watching (really bad) crime TV shows and being a fur mom to an adorable little pup named Xena in NYC.

 

My mission is to educate and
encourage more women &
underrepresented People into tech.

How I can help

I'm here to demystify tech & live mindfully.

To give advice I wish I had when I was starting out in tech 7 years ago.

An introvert at heart, I know what it feels like to put yourself out there. It's hard.
