About



I am a high school senior studying at West Island School in Hong Kong.

I have a strong passion for computers & technology and have an acumen in an eclectic range of computing disciplines, ranging from application development to integrated circuit programming.

I have learned different computing skills and programming languages from online courses offered on websites such as edX, Udemy and Codecademy.

I specialize in web & app development as I have been learning & building websites and applications for a long time.

I would like to pursue a embedded engineering career in my future.








Skills











Experience



Founding Instructor
CoolCompCreate
Since April 2013

I started a creative computing academy in school in 2012 where I teach younger students about the fantastic applications of basic computing principles. So far, I have taught animation, web development, app development and more to over one hundred students.



Instructor
Code Stars
Since May 2015

I was recruited by the owner of Code Stars to create a comprehensive course on Python programming, which will not only consist of basic programming principles, but also the applications of those skills in various fields of computer science. The course will be uploaded to Udemy and will cater towards hundreds of thousands of online students.



Web Development Intern
Digital Butter
July to August 2015

At Digital Butter, I collaborated with the design and development teams to build the front-end of a client-based web project for Prinkco, and enhanced the company website's user interface while connecting the website to Craft CMS using Twig PHP.



Embedded Engineering Intern
Forbes Technosys Limited
July to August 2016

In co-ordination with members of the embedded R&D team, I worked on a site monitoring system (used to monitor flame, temperature, light intensity, motion and door statuses of a room) and a student profiling system (to keep record of students' academic background).
