Our Latinx Scholar Chat is an interview series with our 399 Latinos in Technology Scholarship Recipients and the President and CEO of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, Ron Gonzales. The interview series gives you a glimpse into our scholars’ lives, unveils their aspirations, and their college journey, one conversation at a time.
In this video, we welcome Alma Acosta, a 2019 scholarship recipient about to graduate with a Mathematics degree from San Jose State University. She shares with us her journey of getting to college after high school and deciding to take a pause from academia, only to return back to school to find the Latinos in Technology Initiative. Alma hopes to become a professor at a community college to be an inspiration for future generations just like she was enlightened when she met a Latina math professor at Evergreen Valley Community College.
