I am a first-generation college graduate and bootcamp student. I attended Sacramento State University and earned a BA in sociology. Postgrad I worked within association management but soon realized it was not a long-term career I wanted to pursue. I chased the opportunity to continue learning and find new challenges that would energize me and even stump me. I found this in software development.

Years ago, the topic alone may have terrified me. Today, I am a software engineering student who aims to join a strong team of developers and provide support and a voice for the bootcamp community.
