Welcome Ayesha!

Welcome Ayesha!

YouDo want to welcome Wan Ayesha WAN ISMAIL (Ayesha) to our crew! Originally from Kuala Lumpur and having lived in NZ for nearly 10 years, Ayesha is a regular Welly local, attending Upper Hutt College.  

After college, Ayesha headed south to Otago University to gain a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (major) and Information Science (minor) before joining YouDo. Working on both front-end and back-end development (plus system admin), Ayesha is an all-rounder.

When Ayesha is not programming, she likes to paint (“yes, I bring my watercolour paints and a sketchbook with me”) or write short stories. Additionally, Ayesha likes to watch movies with friends and play badminton.

A random fact about Ayesha is that she first started coding when she was 12 years old – learning how to code from Neopets site (HTML, CSS, basic PHP, a bit of Photoshop) and Lissa Explains it All (the layout is still the same as back then: lissaexplains.com).

Ayesha’s two Favourite quotes are: “Nevertheless, she persisted” & “She believed she could, so she did”

Wow! We look forward to what Ayesha brings to the team.
