About Her

Black Tech Diva serves to document  my journey to learn more about tech.Monica

My name is Monica. I am a front-end web developer interested in exploring Human-Computer Interaction. I started Black Tech Diva to document my journey through learning more about  web development, and hope that it evolves into a valuable resource for others. When I was  in middle school I played around with HTML and CSS on Neopets. I even custom built out a website to feature my Neopian related graphics.

I already know: HTML/CSS, Java, GitHub, jQuery, Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.) Check out my portfolio or GitHub.

I recently started learning:  Python, SQL and more at The Lede Program in Data Journalism at Columbia Journalism School.

I am playing around with:  GitHub and Data Visualization

Favorite App:  I use Evernote to store everything (excluding passwords). I have 470+ notes stored in Evernote! It keeps me organized and it’s super-duper easy to search.

Favorite Websites: Awesomely Techie , Awesomely Luvvie, Afro Baby MVMT, 24 Hours of Happy, Black Girl Long Hair

What do I do offline? I enjoy spending my *free* time watching Shonda Rhimes’s TV shows, meeting new people and volunteering.
