I have always been interested in technology, it’s a rapidly expanding area that I have always wanted to know more about and be a part of going forward.
What did you know about coding before joining the programme?
I had a little experience before joining as I did some in my degree but that was more specific to mathematical situations.
How did you find the recruitment process?
It was a very supportive and involved process, that had a nice friendly and relaxed feel.
What have you found interesting so far?
I have really enjoyed the challenge and it’s been really interesting to see how much you can learn in such a short space of time.
What do you enjoy about Leeds?
The best part about Leeds is that it’s in Yorkshire, it’s a super friendly city with a lot to do on the weekends and some great parks.
What advice would you give someone applying?
Even though it’s easier said than done, try to stay calm and be yourself.
