Welcome to "SHPE Out Loud," the podcast that amplifies the voices of Hispanic STEM leaders. In this episode, your host Monique Herrera sits down with Samara Hernandez, the founding partner of Chingon Ventures. Samara shares her inspiring journey from being an immigrant living in poverty to becoming a trailblazing Latina venture capitalist, offering valuable insights on entrepreneurship and investing in underrepresented areas of the tech industry. Discover how staying true to her authentic self contributed to her success and learn from her advice for aspiring entrepreneurs.
But first, Monique talks with Demian Servin Hernandez, SHPE Out Loud’s new CO-Host about his background, his connection to SHPE, and the vision for the future of the "SHPE Out Loud" podcast.
In addition, get ready for NILA (National Institute for Leadership Advancement) as Sofia Sanchez, student representative for region 5, sheds light on why she keeps returning to NILA year after year and provides a preview of the virtual and in-person options available.
