Martha Niño was born in Mexico in poverty. She came to the United States undocumented passing as a stranger’s child. It was risky but the risk paid off – and although Martha got kicked out of high school she has had an amazing career as a Silicon Valley professional of over 25 years working in hardware, software and mobile. She is part of the only 2% of Latinas to be in this field. She didn’t do this alone – it took many good people who saw value in her.
Aside from her job in tech, she is a writer, a speaker and an advocate for the underserved community. Up until a few years ago, she had never spoken or written about her beginnings and she hasn’t stopped since. It is her hope that with her experiences and reflections others can see proof that the impossible is possible. She is proof.
