Eloiza

Check out how Eloiza transitioned to a tech career at Vodafone with SheCodes! πŸš€

πŸ™β€β™€οΈ Before SheCodes

Meet Eloiza! One of our SheCoders from Portugal, Lisbon πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή. Before starting her coding journey, Eloiza graduated from Biology, but life took a creative turn when she began teaching programming to kids. This job sparked her interest in technology and coding.

β€œI studied Biology, but I ended up teaching programming for kids for a year while I was taking the SheCodes workshops.”

Eloiza also loves arts and crafts. She enjoys making earrings from clay, which is a fun hobby for her outside of work. 🎨

Although she liked teaching, Eloiza wanted a change. She wanted a career that offered new challenges and opportunities. A friend introduced her to SheCodes, which made Eloiza curious and excited to learn more about coding. Even though the tech world seemed a bit intimidating at first, she decided to take the leap!

She took the chance to learn to code with SheCodes, hoping it would open up new career paths for her. 🌟

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Her SheCodes Experience

Eloiza had a wonderful time learning with SheCodes. πŸ’œ She liked the whole experience a lot. One of her favorite parts was how the lessons were set upβ€”she enjoyed that the videos were short and always followed by a challenge to solve. This made learning feel like an exciting puzzle for her.

β€œMy favorite thing about the workshops was the fact that the videos were not too long and that we had a challenge.”

The React workshop stood out as a highlight. Eloiza found it incredibly helpful because it made coding feel simpler and more logical. This workshop really clicked for her, making her coding journey smoother and more enjoyable. She appreciated how everything was taught in a way that was easy to understand and apply.

β€œI really enjoyed React; it just made so much sense and made coding so much easier and logical for me.”

πŸ™‹ How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

SheCodes truly transformed Eloiza's life by giving her the essential skills and confidence to dive deeper into the tech world. Learning the basics of coding at SheCodes was a game-changer for her. It not only provided her with a solid foundation but also boosted her confidence to tackle new challenges in IT.

Armed with her fresh coding skills and self-confidence, Eloiza discovered that Vodafone was offering IT internships. She felt empowered to apply, knowing she had the skills to succeed in a new IT area, thanks to her experience with SheCodes.

Eloiza is now a QA Trainee at Vodafone, working in quality assurance for back-end systems. Her role involves testing and writing automated tests to ensure that both the back-end and front-end systems function correctly for users. This position allows her to apply her coding skills daily and continue learning in a dynamic tech environment.

We’re thrilled to see her thriving in her new career! πŸš€

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’Ό Advice to Future SheCodes Student

Eloiza has some valuable advice for future SheCodes students. She believes that learning to code is not only crucial in today's society but also opens up many doors, especially for women. With many companies eager to support women entering the tech field, now is a great time to start.

She encourages new students to embrace the opportunity to learn coding, highlighting the positive impact it can have on their careers. She also offers a practical tip for those beginning their coding journey: make an effort to understand how to work with Git. Mastering tools like Git can significantly enhance your coding projects and professional collaboration.

β€œLearning how to code is crucial for our society today, and it opens a lot of doors for you.”

So, don't hesitate to dive in and make the most of the resources available to you at SheCodes. If you're ever stuck or have questions, remember that it's okay to ask for help. You're not alone on this journey! πŸš€

We’re proud of you, Eloiza!
