I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I went to Saint Louis University for a Finance Degree in 2016. During my junior year of college, I realized that my skill set might be better suited for programming, so that summer I decided to teach myself Python. After I graduated this spring, I decided to attend devCodeCamp to learn to program in a more structured fashion. I hold a certificate of completion in Software Development from devCodeCamp.
What I Bring
My biggest strength is my problem-solving abilities and that I am a very analytical person. I have played chess my entire life and I find programming as a transferrable skill. In chess, you are constantly trying to solve problems. When I am programming, I look at it similarly. I always enjoy learning new things and it is exciting for me to be on the frontier of innovation.
I am very one-track-minded which can hurt in many ways, but it is very helpful for me when it comes to learning new technologies. I become very determined to be learning and figuring out new problems and technologies. I am excited by new frontiers which makes it easier for me to learn them.
Coding is like our superpower in my opinion. It is one of the coolest things to me. The possibilities of things that you can do go up infinitely when you learn how to code. I have done finance and sales before but neither of those fields was as satisfying to me as figuring out how to complete a tough method for example. Aside from my personal fascination with coding, it appears clear to me that coding is also the future. It seems like the perfect thing to do. I can innovate and get paid to do what I love.
