Having studied Information Management for Business at UCL, I am always interested in how to use technology to increase automation and efficiency of different organisations.

Therefore, initially I decided to choose a career within technology by being an intern at a non-government organisation. During my internship, I initiated and led the idea of using Tableau to visualise and highlight the significant effect of digital marketing campaigns and suggested different innovative strategies that were used for future marketing. In my second year, I have completed a second internship at Deutsche Bank as a Business Analyst and used my Tableau knowledge I acquired earlier to transform and organise a complex dataset into a Sankey diagram chart to depict a flow from one set of values to another which created a much better user experience for the client.

After completing university, I came back to Deutsche Bank to start my career as a technology analyst. In the past year, I have completed two rotations working as a Salesforce and Java developer respectively. As a coding novice, I have spent a lot of time completing online training to improve and expand my technical skills. After a year, I have learnt Java, Python, React, Angular, Shell and different enterprise practice through my daily job and side projects. I have been fortunate enough to use my technical skills to create a significant impact on multiple projects by having a significant contribution towards the code base as well as translating business ideas into technical specifications. I have just finished my one-year graduate program and started working as a software engineer (Salesforce) for one of the biggest digital solutions platforms at Deutsche Bank.
