We have work to do.
I'm Samantha Rose Cruz, a multidisciplinary designer and community builder with a lot of love for CSS, Accessibility, and Design Systems. Currently working as a Senior Consultant at Deloitte.
I have a personal mission: to provide underprivileged people opportunities in working in the tech industry. It is my way to give back to the local tech community, which gave me the opportunity to be here. This is my driving-force to continuously improve my craft so I can teach it to the next generation of designers and developers.
In line with my mission, I've become a community builder. I co-manage and co-founded Tambayan404, a local Discord community for Filipinos in tech and founded ManilaCSS, a local CSS community in Manila.
I'm a full-time furmom to a dog and a cat, and studying the way of the sword as a kendoka on the side.
