Hi Angie, I love how you represent the underrepresented community in tech and I'm happy for all your successes.
I'm one of the underrepresented ones and from a developing country coupled with the fact that I'm 17.
In what ways do you think I can maximize my chances of getting good internships to grow and connect?
If in school, reach out to the Career Center and express interest in obtaining internships.
With COVID-19, it may be hard to get internships and apprenticeships right now. A good way to gain experience from home would be to contribute to open source projects. Not like one typo issue, but really become a part of the project.
