Can you tell us about your professional background?
Over the past seven years I have been working as a teacher in different schools in Europe. Most recently I was working as the music teacher for a private international school here in Madrid. Over my time working as a teacher I have had the pleasure to work with students from all over the world and of all ages.
Why have you decided to become a web developer?
I was drawn to web development as someone who has always had a keen interest in technology and computers. I was also looking for a career that in the future has good prospects, an attractive career trajectory and the possibility of working remotely.
Were you afraid of switching careers?
Rather than worried, I was more excited to try something new. As I had worked hard for many years to become an established teacher it will always be something I can fall back on if I really need to.
How did your application process go with Wild Code School?
The admission process was very helpful in realizing that web development was something that I truly wanted to pursue. The campus manager interviews were informative and encouraging. A great part of the Wild Code School admission process is the initial onboarding task where the student is expected to build a simple website using HTML and CSS. It’s amazing how much you will learn from this task.
What is your Wild side?
Hehehe great question ! I would say that my wild side comes out when I’m performing as a songwriter in Madrid or when I go to other rock’n’roll concerts!
Do you already know where you would like to work after the training course?
My goal is to find a job as a junior developer with a company who will offer me the support to continue learning. Thinking long term, I would like to eventually find a position that is flexible and allows me to work remotely sometimes during the year. The dream is to be able to travel freely while still being working as a developer.
Do you have any advice you would like to give to future Wilders?
