"Every day at First Code I work on a variety of different tasks including product development, teacher training, parent communication, and of course, teaching! I feel incredibly lucky to be able to combine my passion in technology and the endless inspiration from the kids we teach. When I’m not at office, you can likely find me trying out new recipes in my kitchen, reading a book or doing TRX in a park."
"I love building things from nothing to something. I am now focusing on Operations, People Operations, and Software. The laughter in our classrooms and the confidence in our kids' eyes really got me. First Code is not just a startup or a coding school, it is a mission and a lifestyle. We're creating a place where team members are excited to get together and students are thrilled to come to classes. We're full of dreams, energies, and determination. If I'm not at First Code, you might find me at home coding or reading and running outdoor."
"Now learning coding in my spare time, I believe in the value of coding in teaching young children that the sky is the limit. It's wonderful to see students proudly showcasing their work and staying back after class, excited to be working on more coding projects. Outside of First Code, I'm seeking Singapore's best coffee, binging on Netflix or browsing through new productivity apps and tech news."
"Teaching is my true calling, it is something I feel extremely passionate about. Working at First Code Academy as an Instructor is a double treat for me, its the best team ever and I get to teach what i know best while remaining so relevant in technology. I take pride in teaching children how to code and helping them gain skills to prepare for a truly digitized world. It is supremely satisfying to see young minds turn into creators of technology, pushing the boundaries to turn their visions and imaginations into reality. Their spark, uninhibited nature and zest when learning new things are what keep me going. While I am not teaching, I am a doting mother taking care of my little ones or running chores for my family."
"My passion is always in teaching. Working at First Code Academy not only opens up my eyes to the world of startups but also allows me to witness how powerful coding could be to young children. Satisfaction comes from when I hear children shrieked from excitement as they see their idea comes to life! When I'm not teaching, I am either cooking up a storm in the kitchen or practicing yoga!"
"Coming to First Code every day never fails to amaze me when I see kids just 1/2 my size showing off the mobile apps that they have created. It's truly inspiring to see students making their ideas come alive with coding. I feel energetic coming to work everyday seeing how everyone is moving fast and building things! When I am not in First Code, you can find me visiting museums, bar hopping or reading."
Being at First Code is a true testimonial of "love what you do and do what you love". I am constantly awed by the projects students create and how instructors are willing to go the extra mile to create the best learning experience. The synergy at First Code is amazing and the culture is more like a family than colleagues. Everyone readily offers assistance even if we hold different roles. When I am not at work, you will find me cafe hopping around the island, enjoying zumba dancing, or binge watching anime.
