We are extremely proud of all TechLadies Bootcamp participants – in this blog series, we touch base with some of them to see how their lives changed since their graduation 🙂
Two years ago, we introduced you to Min – one of our Bootcamp #3 graduates. How has her life changed since then? What’s her advice to this year’s bootcamp applicants?
Who are you?
Hi – my name is Min and I am currently a software engineer with Cognizant. You can read more about me on my website: https://www.thuimin.com. I love coffee and everything about it, find me if you want to geek out on this!
What is your one main learning from the program?
That programming will always be a journey of constant learning, so it’s ok not to know everything and ask questions. Learning to ask questions and appreciating that everyone has something valuable to bring to the table
To whom would you recommend applying for the next edition?
I recommend anyone who is curious about programming to consider applying. Take 3 months to test the waters. The worst case scenario is you lose 3 months’ worth of weekends. The best case scenario is that you’d enjoy it and open yourself up to many exciting opportunities.
How has your life changed after the Bootcamp?
A lot has changed and I can honestly say that the bootcamp was the catalyst for bringing me to where I am today. I’ve continued to participate in the subsequent bootcamps, albeit in different capacities – as an organizer, as a product assistant. My goal is to lower the psychological barrier for women to say ‘yes, let’s try this’.
