As a true 90s kid, I spent my childhood chatting on MSN with friends 24/7 and changing the source code on my Daum blog (Korean version of Xanga) to make glitter fall in the background. When teenage years hit, I grew interest in art, everyone migrated to Facebook, and I forgot about coding. My interest in coding sparked again when I built my first website from scratch at Pratt Institute. It furthered when I worked closely with web developers and saw what they did, which led me to leave my design job and pursue programming full time.
Since graduating from General Assembly, I’ve worked as a full stack developer in industries including fintech, food and beverage and data privacy/cybersecurity.
