My Story: Taina


Hi! I am Taina. I’m from Brazil, and I am currently living in New York City.

I’m an economist/lawyer turned front-end developer passionate about building web and mobile applications using React.

I graduated in Economics in 2017 and then in Law in 2020. While I was in the last year of my Law degree, a friend introduced me to programming and software development. This friend showed me a website he was building using React. I was fascinated that just a few lines of colorful words on a black screen could do so much.

As I researched more about software development, I realized that there were numerous possibilities career-wise and on the technologies you choose to learn and what you can do with them. That is what attracts me the most about coding. 

So I decided to give it a try and learn the main Front-end programming languages. I did a bunch of online courses on different platforms such as Codecademy, Udemy, and Udacity. 

In March 2021, I completed Udacity’s React Nanodegree Program.

After completing the Udacity React Nanodegree, I spent some time making my own React projects. A couple of months ago, I enrolled in an online Master’s degree in Software Development at Boston University. 

Completing Udacity React Nanodegree had a significant impact on my life. I was transitioning careers, but I wasn’t sure how to do it. The course had a lesson on improving the LinkedIn and GitHub profiles which helped me change them completely to showcase my skills for a software developer role. Furthermore, after I completed the course, I had three challenging real-world projects added to my portfolio. 

In my free time, I love to travel, explore the city with my husband, cook, watch movies and tv series. I also love animals, so whenever I can, I volunteer at animal shelters. I believe that being around animals is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety.

I have a passion to develop web or mobile applications that facilitate the daily lives of its users. I recently built a web app that allows the user to sort a collection of books, move them between different shelves, and search for more books to add to their custom library.
