About me

I am a software engineering student with a love for all things code. I enjoy learning new languages and solving problems with effective solutions. What attracted me to studying software engineering and subsequently to working in this field is that it involves not just technical skills but talking and communicating with others, working in a team and that you get to create and discover something new, whether that be creating a new program or discovering new languages and new ways of looking at the same problem. I particularly like Java programming due to my experience with Java, yet I will not hesitate to learn new languages and tools.
