Biography

Alina M. Perez is the Program Director of Outreach for Break Through Tech Miami at KFSCIS. Alina has been continuously involved with the FIU Panther community since 2010. She is an FIU two-time alumna with a BS in Communications with a focus on broadcast journalism, and a MS in Global Strategic Communications. She holds a CQEP (Certified Quality Event Planner) credential as her communications career has been primarily focused on event marketing and planning. Before returning to FIU in 2022 to bring her passions and skill set to Break Through Tech Miami, Alina worked at QuickNode, Addigy, Royal Caribbean, and Ross University School of Medicine, all in a communications and project capacity. During the pandemic, however, she taught elementary school for two years which broadened her skill set and views even further on how early education is power for future success in tech. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her husband (which she met at FIU), son, family, and fur babies, going to the movies and catching a thriller, dressing up for a Broadway play, cautiously exploring the outdoors, or just staying at home enjoying the lake and airport view from her condo.
