I represent about 500,000 people as the Assemblymember for California’s 39th District.
Upholding a Cause and Belief
Day to Day
When we’re in session, I travel to Sacramento, California’s state capitol. I go to Sacramento on Monday and return to my district on Thursday. In Sacramento, we have sessions two days a week where members present bills for us to vote on. I also meet with lobbyists who are lobbying for a bill to pass or fail. Additionally, I present my own bills that I’d like to pass into law. Back in my district, I attend events and meet with constituents in my office to see how I can help with their issues.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for everyone
There are so many resources online now that can help you get started if you're interested in computer science or engineering. I'd recommend starting there. You also need to understand that learning computer science and engineering doesn't come naturally to us. It's okay if it takes you a long time to solve a problem and it's okay to make mistakes. That's part of the process. Just don't give up.
