Hello! My name is Alexa M. Zaragoza-Torres.  Currently I'm in Middle School at Hogar Colegio La Milagrosa in Puerto Rico. Three years ago, I started a great adventure ... Robotics. I never imagined how many wonderful things we can learn. From simple drawings to scaled drawings, from learning the names of tools to using them correctly, I learned that making mistakes is part of the learning process and offers us an opportunity to try again. I have learned how valuable teamwork is. Through the years in robotics I have understood that STEM skills are the most important tool in the development of our society. In this process, we, the girls involved, can demonstrate how sensitive a field can be dominated by boys. It is important that we shout out loud: we are needed in engineering, technology, mathematics and science ... We can bring our talent, our interest and above all our commitment to achieve a better society.

This story involves fiction and non-fictions situations. I'm showing my story during this wonderful trip inside VEX Robotics. My team, 2263D, never won a pass for the World's Competition, that's our biggest dream!
