Samantha is originally from Venezuela but currently lives in Dublin, Ireland. She has a BA in Communications, Media and Advertising and is a Communications Officer working for an environmental non-profit organization, ECO-UNESCO. Her days at work can vary a lot because her tasks span across many programs and departments in the organization. She helps deal with the press, social media and website management, design publications, and external communications. Her company is in the process of building an e-learning platform at the moment and she’s leading that project. Her diverse job role led her to garner a large interest in technological projects and coding, a skill that she began to see as necessary.
“I have been interested in coding for a while because I think it is a skill that everyone should know these days, at least the basics. I was especially curious to understand how websites and apps are made and how they work.”
To get her foot in the door to the coding world, Samantha began watching YouTube tutorials on how to code. But she felt a little lost and overwhelmed due to the inundation of information out there. Then she found SheCodes and it was just what she was looking for.
“I feel that there is so much info out there that you get lost easily. But SheCodes gives you a friendly structure.”
