Emily Gasca

Growing up in a house of puzzles and word games, Emily should have guessed would end up falling in love with programming. Alas, it was not until after majoring in Cognitive Psychology and toying with code on her down time that she realized she wanted the latter to be what she did with the majority of her time. A leap of faith into a 10-week full-time program called Hackbright Academy (and the way she immersed herself in code entirely) was the best decision of her life as it lead her but years ago to this Facebook opportunity. She’s learning as much as possible and loving the many challenges arising left and right.
