Daniela Petruzalek has made it her mission to make the white cisgender male dominated tech industry truly inclusive.
Daniela is an accomplished software engineer from Brazil, who started working with computers at the age of 14. She’s now a software engineer. She’s always tried to fit into the male dominated field, but it was in direct conflict with who she really was, even growing up. The thing is, Daniela has lived most of her life as a male. But three years ago, she took the leap to transition to her true female self and had to fight her own internal prejudices. And not only that, she was now competing in that same very male field, but as a woman.
