SOFTWARE ENGINEER

About Me

Hey! I'm Mirna Wahab. I'm a Software Engineer with a passion for problem solving and learning new things.

I was always taught to work hard and stay humble. At 15 I started working after school at a restaurant, where I worked my way up to managing the place with the responsiblity for a team of 12. I loved being a part of the growth and success of the business, but I was also so fascinated by the concept of being able to turn an idea in my head into code behind a real, working system. One day a special person in my life convinced me to do what I was truly passionate about and now I'm here! Turning those ideas in my head into something real.

Family is very important to me, in saying that my dream job is to be at an organisation I can call my second family, where we can expand our knowledge and skills as a team and create opportunities for people that only see problems. Outside of programming I want to fill my life with adventures that include traveling the world, discovering and experiencing new places and things.

Disclaimer: if we work together your chocolate is not safe within a 5 meter radius of me.
