Why are you at Starter School?
I'm here to learn how to code and build my web app.
What's one thing that you have been surprised by at Starter School?
The fact that there is no "typical" Starter School student. Everyone in our class has diverse life and work experiences.
How do you explain Starter School to your friends, family, and/or significant others?
Tech School meets Start-Up Incubator.
Were you intimidated to learn anything that ended up coming easy to you?
Creating a basic CRUD app was much easier than I expected.
What makes Starter School different than other classes/schools you've been to?
At Starter School, you are learning a real skill set as opposed to just a diploma.
What are you building right now?
Currently, planning a trip with friends is a hassle. There is no central place for people to gather their potential travel plans and collaborate as a group. My travel planning app aims to solve that problem by creating a tool that allows people to capture and share their potential travel plans.
What would you say to someone interested in joining Starter School?
Go for it!
Favorite place you've traveled? Why?
New York City. It has my favorite local pizza joint, Sbarros.
Is there one experience that stands out for you at Starter School?
Jack's ability to impersonate anyone.
What's next on your bucket list?
Finish Starter School and launch my app.
