Rosa Alvarez's personal hero had always been Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. Why hadn't her country, the country of her birth, been able to send a woman into space? Her family was touchy on the subject. She was chided as a kid not to talk about Valentina because America didn't like Russia. Americans didn't like immigrants either, like her parents and older siblings.
Years later, Rosa found herself revolutionizing the tech industry by working towards gender equity in technical roles. This effort helped her company to break from a slump it had been in, and eventually led to her becoming the CEO.
Things were going great until Trump won the election. Rosa had to decide, could she set her beliefs aside and collaborate with the new administration? Could she allow her company's computers to be used to hurt Muslims in America? Could she put her company at risk to make a stand?
