Hello, long time no see!

I recently had the pleasure of being featured by two fantastic women in STEM and wanted to share those interviews with you.

Firstly, we have a written interview I did with Masha from Coding Blonde. In this interview you can learn a little bit more about how my journey into tech began, how I started my instagram account, and some fun rapid fire questions. — Click here to read that interview.

Secondly, I was interviewed by Aleesha for her youtube series “Talking With Aleesha”. We talked about Finding Your Passion, Being a Woman in Tech & More.  — You can watch that interview by clicking here.

While you are visiting both sites, make sure you read and watch some of the other interviews. You’ll discover so many amazing women doing incredible things out in the world.

What is UML And Why Learning It Can Make You A Better Developer

Before I took the class “Object Oriented Analysis and Design with UML” last semester, I used to put minimal thought into every single component and overall structure at the start of any new project I was going to code. As the eager beginner I still am, I was simply excited to start writing code and would always figure out the structure as I went along.

JOURNAL: Reflections on 2018

2018 was a year of deep inner growth. Creating a vision for what I want my career and life to look like was an integral part of my year as well. I did this by hitting pause on the mental chatter and getting still. Through that, the foundation was set for everything that is to come. As they say, the day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit. So, if you’re going to put in so much work over the span of many months or even years, wouldn’t you want it to go towards exactly what you want out of life, instead of achieving other people’s dreams in vain.Read More »

Happy Tunes and Soothing Melodies

Happy Saturday everyone! Occasionally, I get messages asking me to share what songs I’m listening to on my instagram stories. So, I’ve finally put together a couple of playlists.

I am by no means knowledgeable in music, nor do I believe I have a particularly refined taste in music. I just like what I like and, if your music taste converges with mine, you might enjoy either one of my playlists.

PLAY PLAY Promise

The first is Saturday Sun. A purposefully obnoxious degree of happiness is infused into this playlist to get your day started on the right foot. This one is about hacking your mindset first thing in the morning and making yourself believe you are on vacation by the coast, having the time of your life. Because, honestly, we should be having the time of our lives every single day. Happy vibes all round with this one.

On the other hand, Promise Me This is quite the opposite. This one is a low-key playlist with soft, soothing, and even melancholy tunes to light some incense to, unwind and end your day. Some of my personal favorites from this playlist are all Ben Howard and Novo Amor songs – also anything by Bon Iver (even though I hesitated to include him in this playlist because his songs take me from relaxed to emotional – but I just love him).

I hope you enjoy these playlists!
