Xiomara Figueroa is Co-Founder, and CTO of BookSloth. Xiomara grew up in the central highlands of Puerto Rico to become a first-generation undergraduate student at the University of Puerto Rico. She started by studying architecture, eventually switching to biology until her junior year when she took an introduction to Computer Science course by chance, and fell in love with the practical aspect of it all. She considers herself deeply committed to diversity in tech and education. That led her to co-found Include Girls, a student led non-profit organization for women in STEM fields. She attributed her community-driven attitude to her fellowship with CODE2040, a non-profit organization that supports Black and Latinxs in tech. Since then she has focused her work on building with technology and giving back to the community by serving as a mentor and role model.
