About me
Tenacious and creative self-starter I am fueled by my passion for technology, creativity and diversity. I consider myself as a ‘forever student,’ eager to continue developing my technical knowledge, whether that’s teaching myself to code, upskilling in Adobe Suite, building a Raspberry Pi project or researching emerging technologies. With a background in social sciences, I can intersect technology with societal needs, resulting in building products that put the user first whilst being accessible for all. Additionally, I understand the need for diversity in technology and want to inspire other underrepresented communities. I am currently looking to transition into a full-time Front-End Developer role that develops my skills and provides mentorship in my tech career.

  • Event 2: Professions MasterclassThe focus of this event was to help our 50 Fast Trackers deep-dive on the various roles and career options that they could apply their skills across the digital and creative industries. We know that understanding industry professions may be a confusing process as there is a lot of jargon around what exactly these roles are (i.e. the difference between a strategist/planner, art director/creative director, UX/UI etc).
