to prove this, we’ll
have to go back in
time (naturally…)
T O N O T E :
- virtual mii version of myself
is not to scale.
- my favorite color is in fact
red contrary to popular
belief (I wear blue a lot)
B U T I

I was inspired by
this cool chick!
note: there are links in slides (bolded)
so back in the day…
(2006-2011)
• I wanted to be a vet (elementary school). 🐶🐨🐵
• But then I decided I wanted to be a biologist instead
(middle school). 💉💊💉
• But then I felt bioinformatics was more interesting than
just biology alone (high school). 💊💻💊
…
• And that would be that. 🔐
Did I mention I’ve kinda been an Apple fanatic since my freshman
year of high school?? Cause that’s kinda important.
📱
2007
iPhone arrives

2010
iPad arrives
Apple Watch… not iWatch
inception!
or so I thought…
As much as as much as I loved biology (and I still
do), I couldn’t actually see myself getting a
bachelor’s degree in biology.
To me, a bachelor’s in biology would equate to 4
years of drudgery in busy work where I would be
competing with a whole bunch of aspiring med
school students.
Also, I was starting to resent school in general
(see next) even though I was doing pretty well
for most academic standards.
PA S S .
M Y S TA N C E O N
F O R M A L E D U C AT I O N
Ever since high school, I’ve been kind of a rebel when
it comes to formal education. … I just don’t feel the
current model is as effective as it could be or as it was
so I treated school as an unfortunate necessity that I’d
try to finish ASAP by trying to fast forward through it
(The anti-visual extremely wordy boring PowerPoint
lectures I had to always sit through didn’t help the
situation).
I was more into teaching myself what I wanted to
know. And ultimately, that’s my approach to
everything now.
also, crap,
student
debt!
MUST
AVOID.
I set my own standards and
aspired to exceed them myself.
SO THEN I FIGURED,
WELL, WHY DON’T I
JUST MAJOR IN
COMPUTER
SCIENCE?
-me my junior year of high school
(turned out to be a major turning
point in my life…)
ME

My dad reads this article in the New York Times (or HuffPost? I forget.) about coding bootcamps (App Academy and Dev Bootcamp) and he talked about how they might useful for me since I had already decided at that point I would majoring in Computer Science. I decide I’m not good enough at programming to attend a bootcamp yet. It’s October 2013. After feeling more confident about my abilities with coding and getting tired of being lonely in the learning process, I decide to finally go for it in the winter of 2013 and apply to several coding bootcamps for the summer of 2014. In the end, it didn’t work out because I ended up having to take yet another college course for me to graduate a year earlier, but I learned a lot in the process! S U M M E R 2 0 1 4 , H E R E I C O M E ? …
  • 10. M Y E X P E R I E N C E W I T H C O D I N G B O O T C A M P S _ P T 2 It’s October 2014. I’m going for it again, and this time, no excuses. I decided to narrow my search down to make sure the bootcamp had the following: Excellent Reviews - had to go through Yelp, Quora, CourseReport, SwitchUp, etc. (might be convenient if there’s one website for everything 💡) Excellent Hiring Rate - I may not be looking for a job now, but I will in the near future and I want to be prepared! Full-stack and JavaScript focused (I never liked the idea of learning Ruby). By the end of the bootcamp, I’d have the capability to win Hackathons using the technologies I’ve learned.
