I used to work in Gastronomy and as a Taxi driver so it was very exciting for me to learn everything from scratch to become a full-stack developer. The DCI has completely changed my life in a very good and bright way.

I studied Sociology, then Agricultural studies, but I left both universities. I guess now I just found the best combination of social, technical, and meaningful job ever. I would encourage all women out there to learn Web Development. This whole tech industry urgently needs the social spirit of women.
