I conducted an experiment and crowdsourced this bio through my social network. Here’s what my community thinks of me: Shavonnah Tièra is the INTJ who helped bring Startup Weekend to Las Vegas and among a handful to organize the first VegasJelly. I almost died in Thailand and like to give hugs. This one time, I fell down simultaneously with more than 100 other people! I am a collector of people and ideas, inspiration and attitudes. I don’t believe in impossible. That word makes me work harder, and smarter, which is why I feel like I’m the most ambitious go-getter on the planet. I am a DOer.
Girls in Tech and Black Girls Code are happy to introduce LaToya Moseley, one of our panelists for our She++ Documentary and Panel event.
LaToya is a first-generation college student who grew up in Gulfport, MS. LaToya was the stereotypical geek with straight A’s and top honors in math and science. However, after graduating salutatorian from high school, she went on to Xavier University of Louisiana to study business. Upon the urging of a close family member, she changed her major from business administration to computer science on the first day of class. LaToya went on to graduate cum laude with a dual degree in Computer Science and Mathematics four years later. LaToya was recruited by Caesars Entertainment after college where she worked as an Enterprise Data Warehouse analyst for 8 years. LaToya is now the manager of Marketing Operations for Caesars Entertainment where she identifies customers for corporate marketing campaigns and trains employees on SQL and web-based marketing applications. LaToya doesn’t consider herself a “techie” since she didn’t own her first computer until well after college, but she loves problem solving and learning new things.

Girls in Tech and Black Girls Code are happy to introduce Leslie Loveless, one of our panelists for our She++ Documentary and Panel event.
Leslie was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. I earned a B.S. in Biology from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. IT was not my intended career path. My first job in IT was working for a small accounting firm as an AS/400 operator. I had no previous IT experience. I was given one week of training and set off on my own. That was 15 years ago, since then I have worked in many roles from system operator to manager. In 2006, I was hired as the Data Center Manager for Caesars corporate data centers. I ensure the facilities are in working order to support systems hardware during business as usual and critical situations. I am also the corporate liaison for our iSeries operations support vendor.

Finding the right you is all about being true to yourself and not trying to change to be popular. I tried to fit in once but found out it just made me feel more uncomfortable. People started stare in a bad way and made me feel like I was less then the rest. First I tried to change my hair it was a TOTAL disaster. I tried to do this to get someone to like me but I realized people would like me more if I was just my self and embrased my personality. Next I tried to change my cloths and ended up getting weird looks again. Just trying to change my look made me realize that I don’t feel comfortable trying to fit in and become popular. After I changed my cloths I tried not to act so WEIRED and NERDY but I then thought I’m better off being my self and not bothering to fit in. I ditched my friends for no reason and that made them think of me as a bad person.
If you be your self people will accept you for who you are. Most of my friends who have changed have not been sucessful in school because they are caught up in the drama of being popular. If you change your friends might not want to hang out with you anymore because you create alot of drama. People accept people for who they are not who they are trying to become. Overall if you are your self you are the right you.
