Amara Leggett - Software Developer & Cyb

Tech Portfolio

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.

Bug Bounty for Beginners article - Amara
Computer Club at Saint Leo University -

In addition to a published article about bug bounty training for beginners, I was also a member of the Computer & Hacking Club at Saint Leo University where we completed simulation capture the flag challenges. 

Transferrable Skills


As a result of being a published author, I have strong writing skills that allow me to write in-depth technical documentation.

Since I am an experienced public speaker, I am able to communicate effectively and present well for demos.
