I like to dabble with things that ought to be dabbled with.
I don’t know if you remember me but we Skyped a while ago. You were nice enough to let me ask you questions and get advice on the application process for Fullstack. I went into the admissions process with way more confidence and I got in!
So thank you, you were extremely helpful.
Update June 2016
It’s Angel! First day of Senior Phase at Fullstack. It’s been crazy as hell, but I’ve learned so much in the past six weeks. Thanks again for all the help!
I signed my Sedgefield Elementary School classes up for “The Hour of Code” this past December 2015. Ms. Coronel was one of the volunteers I could choose to invite to do a presentation to my 3rd-grade students. She eagerly accepted my invite and planned with me what Newport News Public Schools wants our students to learn, our Citizen, College, and Career ready ideals and connected them to her unique presentation presented from the aspect of a female Latina. She piqued the interest for all of our students but especially showed our girls that technology and math are not just for the boys.
Ms. Coronel came prepared, was respectful to our staff and students, and helped make it clear that the field of Computer Science is a great field of study for our students to find future well-paying careers.
Again, my sincere thanks to you and I hope we have the chance to reconnect when you’re in NYC !
Hey, I emailed you a few months ago asking for some coding bootcamp interview advice. I ended up getting accepted into Hack Reactor! I’m on my 5th week and have been having an amazing experience. A fellow classmate noticed today that we were connected on LinkedIn and mentioned he was also a fan of your blog.
Anyway, thanks again for the advice you gave me.
