I dream of being a scientist! I love computers and gaming. In fact, my first computer was a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k, which I would spend hours coding from a magazine called Crash. At current I like Mac, Mint, Ubuntu and Windows 10 and I love to code in Python (3.2) and Java OOP. Since object orientated programming is very versatile, I find I enjoy building code that sorts data and solves problems with it. I love computer science because it means i have something to offer biology and physics and it also lays the foundation for medical research and other sciences because of the algorithms involved. Looking for an internship or work experience in computing and IT.

I have basic experience with programming in the following:
  • Sense
  • Scratch
  • Python and Java.
  • Object orientated concepts

Other skills:
  • Linux
  • HTML
  • CSS
