I started my tech journey in 8th grade when I taught myself 7 programming languages with the help of Codecademy and developed my own version of Cookie Clicker.
Since then, I have received my high school diploma and an Associate of Science degree at 16 as well as a B.S. in Computer Science with a specialization in Information Assurance at 19. I discovered my interest in Cybersecurity after I had the chance to shadow the Security Assurance team at one of my internships, which led me to obsess over Hacktivity news.
I'm a developer by nature but a cybersecurity nerd at heart.
