Volunteer Work

Duke Of Edingburgh Code Mentor, Ignite Hubs (Feb 2021 - Present)

President Of The Computing Society, University of Greenwich (June 2019 - May 2021)

Assistant Beaver Leader, 38th Woolwich Scouts (Nov 2018 - Apr 2021)

G-Wizard Developer, University Of Greenwich (Dec 2018 - Sep 2019)
In this role I worked through the University of Greenwich to help provide startups and small companies with development work. In my first year, I completed a web development project where I worked with a company called LISE (London International Student Exchanges) to improve their online platform. This involved helping re-develop the website to match their specifications, help determine correct hosting options, Search Engine Optimisation, Wordpress add on development and some custom themeing.

Code Club Volunteer Mentor, The Ideas Garage (Nov 2016 - Sep 2017)
I volunteered as a mentor to help children learn basic IT/Programming skills. During my time at The Ideas Garage I participated in two big projects, mainly revolving around the use of embedded C/C++ with Arduino's. I also assisted the kids in learning basic JavaScript, HTML and CSS aswell as other topics that interested them. The main aspect of this role wasn't specifically to teach them certain skills, it was to try and find what motivated them within IT personally and target that. This meant that some kids we would allow to experiment specifically with Python, GUI programming or other things, even if we had other overall projects running. We would help them with this experimentation, and help them from getting discouraged.
