Career Kiki XI: From Medic to Software Engineer
Hello friends, welcome back to the BuildShipRepeat podcast with Yulin and her friends. For today's episode, I feel very honored to have Melina Kim with us to share her journey into tech.During our conversation, we discussed the reasons why Melina stopped her time studying at Harvard Med. It is a heartbreaking story but I was so proud of her for sharing her story and seeing her gain strength from her experience and loss. Melina, I am sure your Eomeoni is watching over you and she would be proud of everything you have achieved already!We also discussed our favorite technical and non-technical products, which were Immerse Rehab, Youtube, Wafer ice cream cones (they are better than regular cones!), Google Sheets, and Allbirds.We also shared our favorite cities which carried our best college memories. For Melina, it is NYC and for me, it will always be Boston.Melina also shared her experience with her coding Bootcamp experience and her takeaway on switching jobs into the tech industry. I hope you find this episode helpful and please do leave a comment or reach out if you also lost someone dear to your heart.
