Samantha Monteiro


Samantha Monteiro is finishing her second year at Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil where she is majoring in Computer Science. In 2014, she moved to New York, NY through a scholarship sponsored by Brazilian government in partnership with Institute of International Education and she has been granted the opportunity to take courses related to Computer Information Systems (CIS) at Baruch College, CUNY. She appreciates projects, organizations and companies aiming to remove barrier for specific groups (e.g. women and people of color) in tech field and hope some of her future projects are able to rise to this occasion.
