I was studying technology in education. I watched a video about free software and its importance in education while I was studying abroad on a scholarship. That was thanks to a fellowship I had that aimed to help black and brown students work on public policy.

Anyway, someone a few days later showed me how to install a free operating system at a conference I miraculously ended up attending. That someone is now my life partner.

I’m now an educator and organizer using free software when I can and helping others do so too.

If we meet, ask me about it!

It’s one of my favorite personal stories.
