I am Lili, a U.S. Army Veteran and proud alumnus of Boston University, where I recently earned my Master’s in Software Development. During my academic journey, I seized the opportunity to expand my expertise at Code Platoon, an immersive coding bootcamp designed for veterans. This experience has significantly broadened my development skills. With my academic training now complete, I am eager to embark on a professional path where I can apply and further refine my programming skills in a full-time role. I am excited about the potential collaborations and contributions I can make in the tech industry.
