Manny Becerra as a child

August 2018

I recently had the honor of being asked to speak with a group of incredible young students, predominantly young ladies of color with a strong interest and motivation in STEAM careers.

Shortly after the day of the talk, I received an unexpected and surprising collage from these students thanking me for coming to speak with them, taking their questions, and, provided me with more background on their cool summer projects. I'm just as grateful however, for the opportunity to be invite and be able to connect with these incredible, young people: they're crushin' it!

I am inspired by what the future holds for us, collectively, particularly when individuals like these smart, motivated, thoughtful and curious youth are shown unwavering support, and are believed in to pursue their aspirations.

So, students: thank YOU for having me the other day and here's to a prosperous future to you all! 🙌🏽🔥

I welcome requests for future speaking engagements, in- or out- side of the classroom, particularly on the topics of education, STEAM, inclusive design and technology, marketing, team dynamics and leadership. Please connect with me if you are interested in future work together.
