My name is Mariana Carvalho, I'm originally from Brazil and I came to the United States in 2016 to pursue some of my passions: Computing and Technology. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing, a MBA in Competitive Intelligence, and a Master of Science in Computer Science degree. I have 6+ years of experience in Marketing, and 2+ years of experience in the tech industry. I'm a Zurich Foundation One Young World Scholar, and a Pass It On Award Winner from Anita Borg Institute for Women in Technology. I lived in India for 2 months in 2014, in Rio de Janeiro, for 2.5 years, in Mississippi for 1.5 year, and I'm now based in Boston, MA.
I'm passionate about technology and all its limitless possibilites. I've switched careers in 2016 when I left my Marketing job in Brazil. I've traveled to more than 8 states in the US only with scholarships and fellowships. I always wanted to use my business, marketing and sales skills (soft skills) along with my technical skills. I found my passion working for Sales Engineering. I love my job and I hope to help others that want to thrive and be successful working and studying in STEM.
