About Me

How it all began

My software engineer journey began when I first started classes at my Alma Mater, the University of Georgia. Prior to entering college, I was aware that there is a lot of work done in the background that produce the applications, games, and software we interact with on a daily basis. However, I was not aware of what the background work is specifically called and how is it performed. Nonetheless, my love for technology has been evident since my first computer being a Compaq Presario 2000. Through the opportunity of being granted a chance to pursue a higher education, I have learned of Computer Engineering and programming being the concept I have been searching the name for, and it was moment of pure joy of what I can create.‍ My journey into Tech has been no small feat, something I have come to terms with since I first started. It amazes me how over time, one grows and accomplishes things that weren't thought feasible. I remember my first time seeing code and freaking out over System.out.println because I did not know what it was and what it would do. I remember how I faced a lot of individuals who told me:


"Maybe you're just not meant to be a Computer Engineer. I suggest you reconsider your career choices."

However, I refuse to let that deter me. I continue to push and grow and seek challenges because I can only go up. I am grateful for what college did for me in building the foundations, but I am so fortunate to have networked and learned so much more after graduating from college and realizing that I have a long way to go in my journey as a Software Engineer. I am the first Black woman engineer in the 3 current generations that is my family in addition to being first-generation. I am the start of a big legacy in STEM where I have full intentions of making a huge impact in this world that will remain as my technological footprint even when I am no longer on this earth. This is my testimony.
