Hi, my name is Malina Tran and I'm a software developer based in Los Angeles. I am a native Angeleno, born and bred in the (geographical) heart of the city. New York City has a special place in my .

Currently, I am a resident apprentice at 8th Light. Previously, I was a developer at Sanctuary Computer and web development student at General Assembly, where I was an Opportunity Fund Fellow.

I care about making cities better places for all, especially for underrepresented communities. I strive to create opportunities, having mentored and taught students through iMentor and ScriptEd, and aim to build a more inclusive tech community, having worked with C4Q and GA Ladies. I'm a believer in the infinite possibilities of technology to positively impact lives and leverage change.
