People also call me Powerhouse.
To summarise, I am a...
My coding journey started from a hobby of creating websites for fun when I was 8 years old, and now I continue to bring my ideas to life by playing around with pixels on the internet. I am familiar with:
In September 2018, I joined BT's exciting Graduate Scheme working in the Digital Engineering team. Lasting 2 years, this development programme allows four 6-month rotations across the different delivery teams within BT Consumer.
For 3 years, I've proudly assisted in organising and delivering all-female coding community courses with Code First: Girls at the University of Sheffield. With inclusion and diversity at the core of my community work, I pioneered the first Women in Tech student community in Sheffield. I'm a passionate advocate for Women and People of Colour in STEM, actively working in communities to help create a better environment for future engineers!
I had also taken a leading role in the interdisciplinary group, MedTech Sheffield, as Tech Lead, Chief of Operations and organiser for HackMed. MedTech aims to bring individuals from medicine, healthcare and tech together through events, workshops and hackathons!
I love bringing communities and people together:
‣ Collaboration with HackSheffield to take over 20 CFG students to the InspireWIT conference.
‣ Introducing CFG students to the hackathon scene and the wider Women in Tech community.
‣ Efforts in organising #HackMed18 saw an increase in attendance of women (47%) and students from different backgrounds including Humanities, Finance and Arts.
‣ For International Women's Day 2019, I organised an event at the BT office in Leeds with local Yorkshire speakers in the tech community which was shared and highlighted by BT Consumer's CEO, Marc Allera.
13 years ago, I started writing on the web.
My blog has evolved over time, I now write about reflections of my experiences for both my self development journey (personal and professional growth) as well as daily adventures in life.
I have also started branching out into YouTube and have worked with different people on communicating messages across to my auidence. Across social media, I have a reach of approximately 9,000 people around the world.
Working on my brand has allowed me to develop skills in:
...at the University of Sheffield where I obtained an undergraduate degree in BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences with Employment Experience.
After my second year, I secured a placement year at the University of Sheffield in a Communications and External Engagement role. Although the placement was not a typical one to be taken by BMS students, I learnt a lot from the year. My contribution over the year, led me to be selected as a Finalist for "Best Intern" at the National Employability Awards 2018.
Inspired by my placement, I always encourage students to not let their degree restrict them to what they can do and look beyond the box.
