Sgstudentstories rohan


First Code Academy Creator, 12 years old. (Coding languages: AppInventor, Java Processing, Javascript)

About Rohan: Rohan started coding when he was in 2nd grade overseas, using Scratch. He started learning the basics after-school with a teacher, and then taught himself the rest. Eventually, he got quite good at using Scratch, even coding a 1st person shooter and ads for his father's company. After learning AppInventor in First Code, he participated in the AppJamming Summit and was shortlisted as a Singapore Finalist in the Hong Kong Pitch Day.

Quote from: "My Mom told me I should join the AppJamming Summit. I didn't think I would go anywhere, but I gave it a go. My experience at the AppJamming Summit taught me that sometimes, you may not see the potential of your own skills, but it might take someone else to recognise them instead."

His First Code: In the future, Rohan would like to use coding to help me in what he would like to do in his future job: Astrodynamics and Orbital Mechanics. He would also like to continue and finish the coding roadmap at First Code Academy as well.
