Coding Bootcamp Grad Combines Social Sciences and Art Background with Tech to Become a Front-end Developer

Sharon was working several small jobs and in graduate school when she found out about We Can Code IT. With her passion for helping others, she wanted to learn to code so she could make an even stronger impact. Last June, we shared Sharon’s experience at the 4th Annual LGBTQ Tech and Innovation Summit + Fellowship at Google in Washington D.C. After working in consulting for a few months after graduation, Sharon landed a new job as a UX/Front-end Developer at Findaway!
