Aline has some helpful advice for future SheCodes students. She suggests not letting fear and insecurity hold you back from learning something new. Even if it feels scary, she encourages new students to go for it anyway.
“Feeling scared and insecure to learn something new? Go for it scared and all anyway. You'll get over that very soon. Everyone is scared of learning something new, but only the ones that goes through it thrive.”
She also emphasizes the importance of understanding difficult things by breaking them down and asking for help when needed. And finally, she encourages future students to always ask for help if they have questions or are feeling stuck.
“Never be afraid or ashamed of asking, even if you already did, keep going until you got it. Your journey is yours only, only you can walk on it.”

Aline’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial
Aline’s SheCodes React Testimonial
“For a long time I've been passionate to work with software development, but because I hadn't studied a related major in college and being almost 30yo, for times I thought it was too late to get to such career. But when we have passion and determination, we can make anything happen. I started working as a QA, performing manual tests for a software. But manually testing at some point was no longer a challenge for me, so I wanted to dive into developing automation scripts with JS. I found SheCodes basics and I instantly fell in love with Matt's didactics, teaching code in a simple, fun and clear way! That really helped me to get a head start, with a testing tool that uses JS as framework. Further on, I decided to do SheCodes Plus + React to keep learning and growing as QA and perhaps become a FE developer. It's been over 3 years working as a Quality Assurance Engineer for automation, and I can say I love my job! It's never too late to pursue your passions.”
