👩‍💻 SheCodes Success Story

Yasrah

How Yasrah landed an internship in front-end development thanks to SheCodes

Yasrah finished her SheCodes journey in June 2021.

🙍‍♀️ Before SheCodes

Yasrah is a student of ours who has been interested in learning how to code for a while. She’s originally from Pakistan and is now living in Chicago, IL, USA. She spends her free time surfing the Internet and shopping. 🖥 🛍 

She received a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Iqra University, specializing in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. During her studies, she was enrolled in some coding courses and discovered that she had a genuine interest in the topic. 

“I became interested in coding when I was enrolled in a C++ course during the second semester of my bachelors program.”

After her studies, she gained work experience as a project office coordinator and an assistant manager. But her interest in coding was always on the back burner. She decided to start her coding journey and searched for an online course. She came across SheCodes and decided to take the leap into coding! 👩‍💻  

👩‍💻 Her SheCodes Experience

Yasrah chose SheCodes because she thought it would be a good investment not only in her coding journey but in herself. 🙌 She began by joining SheCodes Free Class and then dove into SheCodes Pro. 🤩

“I was motivated to join SheCodes because I wanted to invest in myself!”

Throughout the workshops, Yasrah enjoyed the teaching methods, resources, and learning with other women in the SheCodes community! Motivated students like Yasrah definitely help make our community so great! 💜

”My favorite parts were making the responsive portfolio and react weather app. The way everything is being taught with some useful resources was great. I even go now and check if I feel the need to revisit any concepts.”

🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

After learning to code with SheCodes, Yasrah decided that she wanted to pursue a career in development. She felt confident about the advanced coding knowledge she’d gained throughout her SheCodes journey and continued to improve her online portfolio. She searched on many job platforms and has recently found an internship in front-end development! 🤩

“It’s because of SheCodes that I was able to land my first internship as a frontend developer. I found this job via Angellist. I wanted to work with a start-up where I can gain more knowledge and give my best!”

Yasrah is now working as a Frontend Developer Intern at a company called Efizza, an online platform for people to sell their property without realtors. She is loving her work so far and gets to work whenever she wants. 🙌 She’s responsible for designing the mobile app for Efizza. She’s creating a new design from scratch and is also putting her front-end development knowledge to good use along the way, of course. 💪 💻

In her development future, she’d like to continue learning and eventually work as a Full Stack Developer. We wish Yasrah the best of luck and have high hopes for her in her coding future!!

👩‍💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students

Yasrah’s advice to future SheCoders is to go for it because you’ve got this! 💪 She thinks that the workshops are affordable, the support is useful, and the teaching methods are very conducive to those who are starting their coding journeys as beginners. We can’t wait to have more students like Yasrah learn with us!! 😍

“Don't have second thoughts. Always remember You Got This!”

“I would definitely recommend SheCodes blindly. Everything is being taught from the scratch and the way it should be. It is affordable, plus if you have any concerns you can always reach out to Matt or his team they are just one step away. :)”

Yasrah’s SheCodes Basics Testimonial: 
“Taking this course has been the best decision so far! Matt has been so cooperative since the very beginning. I have taken many courses of programming previously yet never had any hands on experiences as I am having them now. I simply love how I am able to play with the commands and scream out loud if the codes goes well :D looking forward to grow in this field and live my dreams.”

Yasrah’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial: 
“I never thought that I'll be able to learn so much in few months. The best part about this course was hands on experience which made me wanted to learn and explore more. I like the way Matt always encourages us to try out the exercises instantly. Above that, Matt and his team members have been really supportive through out this course. I never felt hesitant to ask any questions I had . For me, this journey has just begun and looking forward to taking the next course. I am glad that I clicked to try out the online free-class and it leaded me to this amazing platform. This course have been by far the best! Many thanks to Matt, João and Lexi 😊.”

Yasrah’s SheCodes Responsive Testimonial: 
“I can't believe how far I have come. I love showing my work to my friends out of which one said that she can see a big difference in my work since I just started. All the credit goes to Matt Delac, João and the amazing team for making this learning platform for us! I am looking forward to practice more and make few other projects in the coming days!”

Yasrah’s SheCodes React Testimonial: 
“Since very long I wanted to jump into the coding field but couldn't find a platform worth everysecond as SheCodes. It brought me back to my university days where I use to worry about my weekly assignments and projects. Matt Delac has proved to be an amazing Mentor and guide. Special thanks to João Lopes and Lexi for being there every time I needed assistance. It has been a wonderful journey. It seems like I just started yesterday! The journey has just started!”
