She has a background as a media coordinator and a freelance translator for film and TV. She also worked in quality assurance for video game translations and with BBC Japan.
👩💻 Her SheCodes Experience
Maiara wanted a collaborative experience while she learned how to code. We believe this is essential to build confidence, especially for students who are new to coding. It's an important part of our learning process that you have the option to speak to fellow learners and get help from them and the SheCodes team! 🤗
"I really liked the format of the SheCodes courses, with the possibility to ask questions and get feedback. Coding has a lot of collaboration and improvement involved, so being able to work closely with other students and learning how to ask questions and fix our problems was a big thing."
Each course includes homework and eventually bigger challenges like landing pages, websites and apps, so you can see how your knowledge can be applied to a real-life project. We like to keep things fresh and interesting!
🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life
Maiara now works as an Associate Front-end developer for a big e-commerce company! 🏛️
"I am currently in training, going deep in the same topics I first learned with SheCodes. Eventually I will have enough knowledge and experience to be put into projects with some of the biggest retailers in the world."
👩💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students
Maiara's advice is to be persistent - coding is fun but can be challenging. The great thing is that there's always a way around that challenge. There is always a solution to be found. 💪
"Take a deep breath, take a break, search for the topic and see some tutorial videos on YouTube and go back to it, it will make sense, I promise. If you can, take all the courses available and at the end, try to make your own little projects and see how much you can do on your own."
