I discovered coding when I was searching for a career change that was more in line with my abilities as a disabled person. I have been teaching myself to code since 2017, and have a particular interest in Python, improving user experiences, and creating great user-level documentation. I especially enjoy contributing to projects which aim to benefit marginalized people in some way. Technology only makes the world a better place when it’s accessible to all.
