Q: What would you share with someone interested in Interapt’s training programs?

Q: Describe one accomplishment you are really proud of.
A: Finishing the UX Bootcamp. That had to be the most challenging 3 months of my life. I sacrificed so much to attend and finish the boot camp, but throughout that entire time, I felt reassured and had a wealth of knowledge at my fingertips thanks to Interapt.
Q: Please share a little about yourself (family, pets, fun facts, hobbies, etc.).
A: I live at home with my boyfriend and our cat Itachi. We are huge nerds and spend a lot of time gaming, watching anime, and traveling. I also enjoy cooking and baking for my family members. We are the type of family that will find any reason to get together and share good food.
