I am a Baltimore City College graduate of ’16 and I am a Code in the Schools instructor. I have aspirations to help fight against the issues that plague the world stemming from health issues by researching natural medicines. I want to be on the team that cures cancer and make these type of medicines more accessible to the common man. I am interested in this project because I think this project can spread awareness and it could also give addicts the information they need to lead better lives.
I have a deep interest and love for technology, I dream to enhance the world through tech and it’s uses. I have an open heart to helping people, but I want to help the world as a nurturer and leader. I want to heal the world’s wounds and rewrite the way of production in STEM, meaning, make it The core of human advancement. I believe that making the world strong, knowledgeable, powerful, and influential for others will pave the path to great improvement. I will be a powerhouse in software+hardware industry, flooding the world with quality not quantity, which is the downfall of technology. I am focused on using technology for Health-care, Advanced AI and Robotics, and to develop tools that will further advance the human race.
I’m a beginner in coding and i’m trying to learn every coding language i can from this program while I’m here. What I’m learning so far is SQL and at the moment i’m working to try and fix or make a better the sorting system for the for Youth Works program so that more teens can get a job in Baltimore.
Chances are you’ve probably seen me around the city(Baltimore). Whether I’m teaching students K-12 computer science at Code in the Schools(CitS), organizing and hosting a Lesbians who Tech Meetup, attending (or working on a project at) B’more on Rails ( a local ruby on rails meetup) or just hanging out with my pals at the Peabody Heights Brewery, one could say I get around.
I’ve been programming in the video games industry for the last 15 years. We began this project after the death of a friend in the summer of 2016. My hope is that our team can save lives with this technology and make a difference in the fight against opioid deaths.
