About Me:

In my life, I had first experienced my love for art, as a singer and an actor, I had 11 years of acting experience, producing and teaching as an actor and teacher of performing arts. Even at that time I noticed my inclinations to solve things using logic and procedures that were not completely aligned with arts and made me eventually step further and further away from this path, in search of a field more logical and exact. This led me to do an IT technician course in Brazil, when I got to know coding and the IT area, the possibilities and opportunities were so exciting and inspiring, just thinking about the variety of creations and implications that coding can have was enough fuel to keep me going and work in the area.

Now, in Canada doing the IT Programming  DEC course at LaSalle College, not only I am learning new languages and procedures but also improving my ability to self-learn and focus on the subjects  of coding that I like the most. I intend to be a fully-fledged back-end developer by the time you read this 🙂
