Regine De Guzman
Regine De Guzman is a Computer Science and Cognitive Science student at UC Santa Cruz. Growing up in Long Beach, California, her immigrant parents supported all her learning pursuits despite the different educational expectations between Filipino and American cultures. She was passionate about science and helping others, and dreamt about being a doctor someday. After receiving her first laptop from a scholarship, she stumbled into coding in college and fell in love. From serving as the 2017 Girls Who Code San Francisco Bay Area Regional Champion to tutoring AP Computer Science for underprivileged girls at Girls Inc. in Oakland, she mentors and inspires other young women to get into technology. She will be interning in Washington D.C. with the US Census Bureau this summer. One day, she hopes to be a Computer Science university professor.
