Hi there, we are Itzel and Dante, the co-founders of LELP.
We both graduated from UC Berkeley, GO BEARS! and we are passionate about helping others, giving back, and making an impact in our communities & the world. LELP is one of the ways that we plan to do that.
Itzel is a first-generation college grad & a Software Engineer at Pandora. She was born in Mexico, grew up in Downtown LA & moved to the Bay Area for college.
Dante was born in San Diego, grew up in Tijuana, Mexico and is currently a Product Specialist at Facebook working on Instagram Ads & Shopping.
LELP blossomed from the challenging experiences that Itzel faced as a Latina pursuing Computer Science. Through LELP she hopes to create a community and a positive experience for young Latinas so that they feel encouraged and supported in their pursuit of Computer Science.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
