— Welcome, I’m Justina. This year, I'm seeking balance and living in the present. I dabble in engineering, design, product, community, and more.

As of now, I'm a rising second year in ︎ Dev Degree where I write code to help merchants expand internationally while studying CS at Carleton University on a full-tuition scholarship.

I'm also a product manager at the Stanford GSB Venture Capital Initiative, where we aim to bring clarity to the startup fundraising process with Harvard Business School and Techstars.

Ottawa born, Chicago raised

On the side,︎︎︎ run Canada’s largest student tech conference ︎︎︎ do fellow things at Contrary Capital ︎︎︎ and advise an education nonprofit incubated at Harvard Innovation Labs.

In high school, I ︎︎︎ built Search and more on Statefarm.com ︎︎︎ designed a digitally mindful extension with 800+ users ︎︎︎ organized tech events educating over a thousand youth ︎︎︎ helped raise over $20k for social justice through tutoring services ︎︎︎ and won a few hackathons as an MLH Top 50 Hacker.
