University of Nebraska Omaha
Cisco Systems Scholarship Recipient

I am Rubenia Borge, a Fulbright Scholar and a Delta Kappa Gamma Society World Fellowship Recipient for Nicaragua! I am a Systems Engineer, and worked four years in this field. I taught English, Business, and Computer Literacy courses. Currently, I am a full-time student in the Management Information Systems masters program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and I am a Software Engineer Intern at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska. I participate in the Women in IT Mentorship Program, and I am CRA-W scholar. I want to meet Sheryl Sandberg and volunteer to share her message in Spanish.

“In my country, computing is a field in which only men are successful, women do not get the chance even if they deserve it. I feel that as a woman, I have to work harder to get what I deserve, but I don’t mind it. I will work as hard as I need to in order to make my dreams come true and help other women to make their dreams come true,too.”
