Started an internship
First day as an Outreachy intern with UNICEF Innovation! 🎉
My actual dream job! So grateful for Outreachy for allowing me this opportunity.  Will be blogging about my experience on my new Hashnode blog!

Internship program with Outreachy, working on open source projects maintained by the UNICEF Innovation team.
Focusing on the Kindly project, an API using machine learning to detect toxic and harmful messages, with the aim to reduce cyberbullying and make children feel safer and empowering them to communicate with empathy.

Started a personal project
Started working on personal project, Red List for Who. Creating a simple platform to help South Africans (and other countries on UK's red travel list) find ways to bypass the hotel quarantine by matching countries based on restriction requirements.

Stopped project as South Africa was taken off the UK's red list.

Using Python, Flask SQLAlchemy and SQLite.

Learning Software Development
+ 1
Started at Launch School.
Launch School is a rigorous online program that focuses on Mastery Based Learning (progression through demonstrated mastery through assessment, rather than time), and teaches the software development process starting with the fundamentals. Written assessments and live coding interviews are required to progress through the curriculum. 

Coursework begins in Ruby for general programming, OOP and problem solving/algorithms, covers Rails for back-end, before moving on to relational databases & SQL, HTTP, HTML/CSS, and JavaScript.

Feel free to read more about the program here:
