Valerie's Story I have been interested in coding for 5 years now. I have been learning through freecodecamp.org and although I think they have done great work and they offer a lot of content for free, I think I need classes that go deeper on the topics I don't understand and where I can have a community of people I can ask questions to. I am in a beginner-intermediate level for HTML, CSS, Javascript, and python. In the last few months I started learning SQL and node.

🙋‍♀️ Valerie's Motivation

I am a Colombian student and due to the protests right now and before it the pandemic I don't really want to get out of my house. I think learning to code can give me a unique opportunity to get a 100% remote job that pays in USD which is a lot here in Colombia to take care of my mother and myself. My main motivation for learning how to code is to have my family safe economically and psychologically as well as having a secure job and long-term career.

🤹‍♀️ Valerie's Hobbies

I like to stay at home and be with my mother, read books, watch interesting and meaningful movies, I like to go hiking or simple walks to clear my mind and enjoy nature. I like to work out at home mostly and my perfect evening is a well-deserved glass of wine with an enjoyable book or audiobook.

SheCodes Foundation Mission

Women currently hold 25% of coding jobs and earn 30% less money than men. In most developing countries, more than 65% of women don't have bank accounts and cannot afford to invest in their education. Female refugees also don’t have many opportunities to invest in their education and improve their career horizon - they often work in unskilled, undervalued, and low-paid informal sectors.

SheCodes is here to help provide women in developing countries and women who are refugees with the opportunity to learn how to code for free. SheCodes offers a solid introduction to product development, product design and product management.
