Hi, I'm Rachel!
I love computers and technology - especially programming!
In my journey to become a competent computer programmer, I've also found my secondary passion - teaching.
While I'm definitely an introvert, over the years I've evolved and learned to grow out of my shell - somewhat. :) Through an excitement for teaching other people cool stuff (math, programming, creative activities, etc.) I've become a much more outgoing person.
I also love studying about software development, and keeping up with the Open Source community. I LOVE Open Source software, and use it in almost everything I do related to computers - My operating system, my video editing software, my art, and my programming.
While it's hard to find many hobbies away from the computer, I've also picked up a love of learning about other languages. Similar to learning programming, language is a neat puzzle of syntax and semantics, as well as a more "creative" side when it comes to speaking and learning about culture.
While I have a strong desire to do *everything**, my main focus and goals in life is to use programming in some form or another in conjunction with my other hobbies.
I like making online lessons on programming through my website and on YouTube, I like organizing local classes to teach kids and adults about programming, and I like experimenting with software to help teach a topic - math, language, or maybe even piano!
