I am a front-end developer for the time being, learning my craft at Free Code Camp. I aim to become a full stack developer. As I love helping people, I look forward to the last projects of the curriculum: they will consist in building an app for a non-profit organization.
As a coder, beside Free Code Camp, I am part of a wonderfully supportive community united around the #100DaysofCode. We pledge to learn and practice code everyday to improve our craft. It is an excellent way to grow and adapt to the latest technologies.
When I'm not in front of the computer, I meditate, practice Qigong and T'ai chi, and I like to take a walk on clear nights to watch the stars. Always so happy when I have the chance to spot a shooting star!
Self-actualization plays an important role in my life. Self-actualization is the quest to realize one's potential, the quest for meaning in one's life. I am curious and I like to experience new things and new ways of thinking, to grow beyond what I was taught. It is constant reinvention of one's self. Since we are facing huge challenges that affects us globally (such as the rise of technology, environmental issues), I think self-actualization will become more and more necessary.
Self-actualization is not always easy, and this is why I'm always happy when I can help other people reach a new phase of their life.
I've come to think of beauty as a gift one gives to oneself and to the world. I believe that beauty manifests one's gratitude for being alive.
The person who taught me the most about beauty is Ustad Sayeeduddin Dagar, a master of the ancient Indian tradition of Dhrupad. He taught with great humility not only music, but also the delicate art of being human, and I feel very honored to have had the chance of meeting him.
What I would like to bring in the world is more respect, toward each others, toward animals, toward the environment.
To build this site, I specifically chose a greeen webhosting service (Infomaniak), which uses renewable energy and cools its datacenters with outside air.
As a woman, I know what it feels to be a minority. This has led me to learn about inclusivity, and this is something I would like to develop around me.
Creating things is fun. But what's even more fun? Creating things collectively!
I do this on a regular basis with a group of friends who share my interest in meditation. We co-create and co-animate workshops on meditation every quarter.
I've always been fascinated by collective projects such as Wikipedia, and this is why I am very happy to be able to contribute to open source projects. As of today, Oct. 12th, 2017, I have submitted my first contribution on Github! :)
I practice meditation and internal martial arts (Qigong and T'ai chi ch'uan, Yang style). My teachers are Nathalie Champougny and Jean-Luc Champougny, who learned with Vincent Lasorso (White Willow School of Tai'chi). I would really love to spend a summer in the United States in order to follow a course by Vincent Lasorso!
I love music and I play the violin. I was part of my University orchestra and I later played in several bands, mostly with a folk flavor.
My favorite artist is Nina Simone, whom I think was an absolute genius. I love how she intertwined Bach's melodies with her music. She had a way of traveling from simplicity to complexity that always marvels me. As a result her music is sacred, no one has the right to touch my Nina Simone albums! :P
