As a lover of music and poetry, Octavia has a creative side which she taps into to write poems about other people’s heartbreak. “I am very into R&B and soul and I read investigative fiction and thrillers.

That’s the beauty of WeThinkCode_ . The academy’s innovative approach to recruitment, brings in diverse youth with different skills and experiences. This contributes to building diverse pools of talent to service the ever growing demand for digital skills.
