Hey, I'm Tyron! I'm interviewing skilled individuals from the Tech industry's underrepresented groups. Why?
1) To learn what skills, character traits, and actions have contributed to their success.
2) To reinforce the notion that a career in Tech is stimulating, rewarding, and most of all, attainable.
Interested? Join the conversation.
Critical Thinking - Victor Scotti, Jr.
Victor Scotti Jr. holds a Bachelor degree from the University of Pennsylvania and worked at Google for 7 years. He is now pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors by developing Moving Mountains - an accelerometer program which aims to accelerate the self-efficacy of black boys by providing professional experience, job shadowing, mentorship, and socio-emotional support.
Our conversation was very candid and wide-ranging. In addition to his academic & professional accomplishments, Victor spoke candidly about his personal journey, a journey which includes the support of loving parents and the guidance of mentors. However, it also includes navigating through racial stereotypes as well as identifying & stepping into his true self in order to live his best life. I greatly enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do as well. Relevant episode links are available here: www.codeswitch.io/victor.
