About Me

#ActuallyAutistic#ADHD

After graduating high school, I did some searching on what career was most important to me. I found Flatiron school and learned coding. Learning different programming languages listed in my skills section and resume assisted me in managing and completing my own projects outside of academia. I continually use these skills to engage in consultive work for projects and I am currently looking for a full-time remote role.

Ideal Workplace Values

What I value in an ideal workplace would be a remote job and somewhere I can be accepted with my ADHD and autism. I have been a lot more open about having autism and I hope I can stay like this where ever I work.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

When I was younger I always enjoyed using computers. I was always quick to learn anything on the computer. I was then always the one asked to fix things on the computer or teach my family how to use certain apps on the computer. In high school me and a friend of mine found codecademy. It was really interesting and we would race to finish more lessons. But once school work started to be too much we stopped but I still tried to pursue software engineering in community college. After I struggled a lot in college I found a coding bootcamp called Flatiron. I decided to apply there instead of continuing college. I really enjoyed my time there and I learned so much and I am excited to show what I can do to my first tech employer.
