- Community Fellow, Code for America
Andrew Hernandez recently graduated with a B.S. in computer engineering and is excited to start applying his skills to promote systems change. Throughout his life, he saw problems in society and government that were not being solved. He was fortunate enough to work with Microsoft as a Technology and Civic Engagement Fellow where he dipped his toes in civic tech, but once he saw all the problems and the people trying to solve them, he dove head first. It was during this time that he found out about Code for America. He joined his local brigade, Code for San Jose, but he wanted to do more; so here he is now! Andrew wants to one day apply his knowledge of hardware and software to create something that will help the system and, with Code for America, he hopes to find more inspiration.
