About me

English is my second language and it is one of the main reasons that motivated me to be a software developer. I want to build software that is accessible and my goal is to create software or work with a company that makes products for people who are underrepresented, especially those who are fellow second language learners. I am excited to bring skills such as team collaboration, project management and agile workflow to my new career as a software developer.
