🐾💪🏼 is my emoji name.
Jack of all trades, master of *some*
I wear a lot of hats but in summary...
I enjoy playing around with pixels on the internet to bring my ideas to life!
Self-taught in web-development through fun trial and error, which actually started from a hobby when I was 8.
Being a believer of paying knowledge forward, I also dedicate my time to…
I’m involved in the organisation and delivery of coding community courses for female students (with little to no coding experience) with Code First Girls. The two courses include teaching the basics to web-development and Python.
For International Women's Day 2016, I showcased some incredible women. I asked them why women-focused communities are important, why it's important that women are recognised in STEM and encouraged them to have their voice heard and share any stories! The whole thread can be found here.💗
I also take a leading role in the interdisciplinary group, MedTech, a society that aims to bring individuals from medicine, healthcare and tech together through things like events, workshops and hackathons! I'm part of the organising team for the next HackMed hackathon coming in Spring 2018.
I like bringing all these communities together. In February 2017, I collaborated with HackSheffield to take over 20 of the students from the CFG coding course to wider women in tech conference.
13 years ago, I started writing on the web.
My blog has evolved over time, I mostly now write about reflections of my experiences for both my professional and personal development as well as daily adventures in life.
I also write other science-focused blogs on Science Brainwaves.
As a passionate content-creator initially starting from old school blogging, I think it's important to have a positive and impactful social media presence which can be used as a platform for effective and engaging communications.
...studying an undergraduate degree in BSc Biomedical Sciences with Employment Experience at the University of Sheffield.
My degree title is a bit longer than usual because I took a year out after my second year to do a not-so-typical-for-a-life-sciences-student placement in a Communications and External Engagement role.
