WHO AM I?

¡Hola! I’m Jen, a Guatemalan web designer and developer living in Düsseldorf, Germany. I enjoy travelling and anything that is tech related. I love to drink coffee and rum (not necessarily together), especially if they are Guatemalan. I have a soft spot for anything related to super heroes, Legos or T-rexes.

MY WEB STORY

After joining Amazon, I became really curious about the web. I wanted to learn how things work online.

So I enrolled in an online bootcamp. I learned a lot about back-end development and created cool projects. The only problem was: they looked like crap.

Not satisfied with the work I had done, I enrolled in different online courses about web design, front end development and content management systems. While I was studying this new field, it suddenly hit me: This was the work I really enjoyed doing.

That’s how I discovered that I love to design and develop websites and that I want to focus on developing my career in this field.
