pon graduating from Boston College as a psychology major, I found myself constantly fascinated over what I thought to be an incredibly innovative app idea. I began to chase this idea, which propelled me into the world of technology and birthed my passion for programming. I am thrilled and driven by innovation. Thinking and creating in ways that will make for a better experience for my community is the purpose I intend to serve. Possessing the skills to turn what may seem like an intangible idea into a tangible application intrigues me. As I continue to learn programming, I understand that problem solving is my driving force. After months of debugging, I have been pushed beyond my comfort zone to find solutions to roadblocks. No single challenge in programming is always the same, nor are the solutions. This is a very unique quality of programming; it is ever changing and ever evolving.
I entered Iron Hack’s coding boot camp, which gave me experience with all stages of the development cycle for developing dynamic web projects. While enrolled in Iron Hack’s program, I worked as a full-time teacher at a low-income school and infused the knowledge I gained into my classroom’s curriculum by building a fully functional game alongside my students based off of our lesson. I began hosting an after school program for young girls who attended my school who gained interest in coding. Soon after the completion of my program at Iron Hack, I began to get involved in local hackathons and meetups around my community to keep myself involved in the tech ecosystem of Miami. I returned to Iron Hack’s school as a course manager, where I currently focus on DRY code principles, debugging, design patterns, and test driven development on applications built with MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node for 18+ students.
