# Nominee Name Country Statement Nominated by

1 Vicky Vergara Naucalpan, Mexico Vicky is an inspiring supporter of OSGeo work and helping to bring new groups of people into the OSGeo world.

She mentors every year for GSOC via pgRouting bringing in many young youth into the community.

She works heavily on the OSGeo Live project to help showcase OSGeo projects.

She is a women in code supporter. Most recently she was involved in Open Source Day and conference where I had the pleasure of seeing her at work, helping young women do their first contribution to open source and navigating the complexities of git.

She is multilingual - speaking Spanish, English, and Japanese to name some and embraces many cultures and brings all into the OSGeo fold to commune and learn from each other. She also talks in many conferences around the world.

She is a great role model for everyone. She is an indispensable role model for many minorities and women hoping to get into tech and elated to see a familiar looking face. Although she is brilliant she is very modest when talking about her abilities. She has a vast knowledge of C++ and Economics and an infectious smile and love for exploration which energizes all around her.
