For as long as I can remember art has been part of my life in one way or another. I started dancing when I was four years old, and when I was seventeen had my first arts administration experience. My dance and arts admin background has given me so much, and I’ve worked to give back to the arts community where I can. While dance and art are certainly a passion of mine and will always be a part of me, there is more to me.
At the beginning of 2020 I took the plunge and applied to the Tech Talent Pipeline’s NYC Web Development Fellowship at Flatiron School. It was simultaneously scary and exciting to do something so different from my background, but from it I’ve grown so much. Every day I enjoyed learning something new, pair-programming, debugging, and applying what I learned in code challenges, labs, and naturally, the applications I built. In fact, one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that creativity and logic are not so separate from each other after all; there is a lot from my background that translates over to coding. Through this experience I have gained the necessary skills to become a software developer.
I am passionate about utilizing programming and technology to problem solve and leave a positive long-lasting impact. I want to create thoughtful quality features that will improve productivity, bring people together, and encourage growth.
