WHAT'S THE MOST INTERESTING THING YOU'VE WORKED ON IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

Worked on implementing a new feedback tab across our whole site, which has been interesting to read the resulting comments/feedback!

WHAT'S YOUR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND?

Studied Computer Games Development at Glyndwr University (as the only female in the class!) which was a fantastic experience for me, really helped bolster my technical / computer skills overall!

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO DIGITAL & TECH?

I have always loved gaming and computing since a very early age, and the new generation of consoles and the joy that brings to people inspired me to give up my previous job (in pharmacy) and go learn what I really loved, computer science!

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO GIRLS THINKING ABOUT A CAREER IN DIGITAL AND TECH?

You can, and will be amazing in tech. Don't let any presumptions you may have stop you doing it if it's what you enjoy! I expected to face a lot of adversity being the only female, but my experience was anything but! And made me a far more resilient person!
