CFG MEMBER BIO
Code First Girls Instructor, Fellow, Python & Data Course Alumni
HOW DID YOUR JOURNEY INTO TECH BEGIN?
I completed a PhD in Particle Physics and graduated in 2019. After 8 years at university I was ready to enter the real world and begin a career. I wasn’t entirely sure what that was at the time but I ended up working as a Software Engineer and I have been here for 2 years now.
HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH CFG?
I completed the Databases and SQL course in November 2020. I have a very analytical mind and love learning more about data and analysis techniques. I am very eager to keep learning new technologies. In January 2021 I began the fellowship program and started teaching Python.
WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO GET INVOLVED?
I had some experience demonstrating modules during my PhD but I had never led a class before. I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could teach a class. I also wanted to be a part of the CFG community and help young women on their journey in Tech.
WHERE HAS YOUR TECH JOURNEY TAKEN YOU TO?
I am still working as a Software Engineer but teaching students has made me more confident and increased my desire to continue teaching.
