About Me

Overview

Hello! My name is Sarah Yun and I am a graduate of Flatiron School's immersive program, where I spent 15 weeks cultivating what began as a curiosity for code into a passion for web development and design. During this time, I learned how to operate as an engineer with the discipline to foster self-sufficiency within a collaborative environment. With an emphasis on paired and group programming, I accumulated both the hard and soft skills required to work in a professional setting. Furthermore, my background in Psychology and Marketing prepared me to effectively understand and focus on the end user. I am excited to apply my newfound skills along with my human-centered approach on my new journey!
