Rizel Scarlett joins the show to talk about her origin story, from pursuing a degree in Psychology to becoming a Developer Advocate at GitHub.

We discuss the challenges getting into tech, particularly for people of color, and how non-inclusive environments can sometimes create the illusion of imposter syndrome, when it's really a lack of healthy workplace culture. We talk about how Rizel started G{Code} House to help carve a path for young women and non-binary people of color because of her own challenges in the tech industry.
