"I work as a civil engineer in the transportation industry. Transportation is one of the oldest engineer industries, especially in New York City. So a Latina working there is simply out of the question. I am the only woman in my department, the only woman of color, and definitely the only woman in the technical field. Being there for more than six years and until this day, people think of me as the administrative assistant. They ask me: “Oh, are you your boss´ secretary?” And I look at them in the face and I say: “I know you for six years, and you still ask me this question."
