Hello! I’m Michelle from London. Thanks for coming this far…
👩💻 I am a newly trained, full-stack developer after completing my diploma in Software Development with Code Institute.
My background is in brand marketing, social media, creative, and being the person people come to when something doesn’t work (social scheduling mistakes, image resolution issues, a broken toilet, you name it…). I spent 11 years in the music industry, 7 of those at Ministry of Sound, and the last 6 years as a Freelance Marketing Manager across many different sectors including travel, insurance, music, film and events.
Like many, the start of the pandemic caused much of the freelancing work to wind down. So I took this perfect opportunity of time to dive into learning something I really wanted to know, how to code websites!
Thanks to Code Institute, I received my diploma in February 2021 with a Merit, with my full-stack final project graded a distinction.
🍼 A small detail I left out above is that 1 month after starting my diploma, I found out I was pregnant for the first time. I really didn’t make this career change easy for myself!
After a lot of hard work, and sleeping, I thankfully submitted my final project just in time before my daughters arrival. Talk about a hard deadline!
So after the slight delay to my plans and learning whole other job first, I am gearing up to pursue my new career in Web Development, and hopefully set a good example for my daughter in the process.
📸 I also take photos of pretty paces and sell them as wall art as a side hustle. My photos are available on many art and home stores world wide. If you would like to take a look at my pics, check out www.Instagram.com/michelleclementphoto
