+Coqui Negra​​​​ oh yeah, I was. My great grandfather (who lived downstairs from me growing up)was very light skinned. Young me thought he was white. I was aware back in the day but more so now because I am a dad of a mixed kid. I look back and see where challenges may have presented themselves.

When Vanessa Hurst graduated from college in 2008 she became part of a rare breed: women who hold bachelor’s degrees in computer science. In the U.S. in 2001, 27.6 percent of bachelor’s degrees awarded in computer science went to women, according to the National Science Foundation.
