“Humankind is based on connection, and tech supercharges human interactions. My whole life I’ve been nurtured by a global community: I was born in Croatia and wonderfully received by Mexico after my family and I fled the Balkan war. It was this global community that empowered me to dream and believe in my power, not only as an actress or an entrepreneur, but as a human being. That is why I am both humbled and excited by the opportunity to be joining such a dynamic and accomplished board. I know the only way to keep empowering kids in the area in a sustainable manner is by creating and growing a true community. The common denominator we have for that today is tech. With my experience in software, I am hoping to establish new goals for STTE in the areas of engineering and coding, especially for young women in the area.”
