Errica C. | Senior | Team: 1073 | Female | Pan | 2016 – Present
What do you do on your team?
I’m the CEO/captain of 1073. Previously, I was the software VP/lead.
Why did you join LGBTQ+ of FIRST?
I’ve always struggled with self-confidence and allowing myself to be anything beyond others’ expectations. FIRST gave me the opportunities I needed to open up and learn to take a stand for my identity, and LGBTQ+ of FIRST is a chance for me to pass it forward for others in the community.
What are your goals for the future?
Currently, I plan on majoring in computer science and entering the medical field.
