Kanyisa Ntombini

Hello there!

My name is Kanyisa. I am a programming novice and my interests are in Javascript and Python. For the past few months, I have been learning about front end development using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I have just started learning the back end development using Node.js and Express.js. I am also interested in Data Science. As a result, I have been learning some Python basics.

I am partially sighted due to a condition called Keratoconus which led to me becoming a disability activist. Initially, I wanted to pursue a career in science and technology because I thought it was so cool. After high school, I started using screen readers and enlarging software. This enabled me to be able to use computers and cell phones. As a result, I would like to develop cheap accessible technology for disabled people from low-income communities.

When I am not coding or doing activism I love hiking, going to the beach and spending time with my friends and family. I am also an avid knitter!
