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.
