First name: 
Rozelle
Description: 
Upon leaving his last job assignment as a civilian software test engineer for the U.S. Army, this tech enthusiast had become discontent, disenchanted, and dissatisfied with the work conditions in which he kept finding himself, and so he began searching. And in a bizarre twist of fate, longtime technophile, Rozelle Monroe, found himself transitioning into the new role of graduate student into the M.A. in Technical Communication (MATC) program at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas for a career remediation. He communicates that he has thus far enjoyed the warm and considerate reception of the MATC faculty, and the camaraderie that seems almost innate in every student for which he has had to interact within the department. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University in Greensboro, North Carolina. And it is this formal education that has served as a springboard into the various technological roles in which he has held tenure the last ten years. It is his passion for technology, love of people, and his drive to bring change to the ideas of the underrepresented regarding technology that these experiences are shared in the Cuentos & Testimonies II collection. His hope is that sharing his experience will give birth to motivation, courage, and change, making technology more accessible and more appealing through its ability to transform lives. He looks forward to using his aptitude, experience, zeal, and voice for technology to promote the benefits of this field. Also, he hopes to help convince leaders and governing bodies in the technology industry that diversity, inclusion, and equity are critical if the field of technology is to continue to thrive.
