Tech is one of the fastest growing and ever-changing industries. I experienced this first hand when I was started my journey into the tech industry. It's easy to feel scared and often overwhelmed. I was looking for a community to support me where others have gone through the same thing. A place where I could stay up to date with new tech trends and connect with others.
When I wasn't able to find a platform that offered all of this, I decided to create TiffinTech. A place to help ease and share what tech has to offer, to inspire people to pursue their goals, and that you can break into STEM fields at any stage of your life regardless of your background.
I am currently a software developer who once modelled and thought I wanted to pursue a career in the fashion industry. While I was modelling in Hong Kong, I eventually felt the desire to further my education. I decided to depart the modelling world and move back to Canada, knowing that could be the end of my modelling opportunities. I attended Ryerson University for GCM (Graphic Communications Management), as I thought I might still to work in the fashion industry in another capacity. It was in my last year of university, I was introduced to a very basic coding course. I instantly fell in love. From there I knew I wanted to pursue software development but didn't have a clue where to start. I didn't want to go back to university as I just completed a four year degree. I decided to enrol in a 10-week intensive coding bootcamp. From there I started working at a small startup learning and growing my technical and soft skills. I then transitioned to a larger company where I am a software developer and technical consultant today.
