Ever since I was little, I’ve been a curious person: I love observing and learning how things work, and trying to recreate the mechanisms myself. So naturally, I became the “go-to computer guy” for my friends. You know, the one you call when you have a virus. Still, I never imagined I would one day become an IT developer. In fact, my first job was working in a restaurant, as a server and barman. I loved this industry: the intensity and rhythm, always on the move, contact with the customers, team spirit. To this day, I continue to use the skills I learned, such as organization, work ethic and verbal communication. But the job is physically draining, and I realized I needed more balance in my life.
During those years, I never lost my fascination for IT, and I finally took the plunge in 2015 and enrolled in the 42 school. My years as a student were eye-opening: I rekindled my long-held desire to understand and design. In short, I learned that I was born for this job. After 42, I started working as a full stack developer at Semeia, a health industry start-up that designs a software suite with the aim of optimizing patients’ care. I would later become a Front-End developer specialist at Qonto.
