Mariana Hilo is a software engineer at Intuit, Inc in Israel. She earned her Bs.C. in Computer Science from Haifa University. As a Christian Arab growing up in a Jewish State, she never felt that there was a comfortable space for her. Straddling the worlds of Israeli educational institutions and an impoverished and uneducated family, she was the first in her family to graduate from high school. She hopes to one day pay forward the mentorship and support she received and looks forward to meeting other members of marginalized communities.
