Software Engineering student.


A short insight into who I am!

Hi! My name is Linah Al Jarad and I'm currently a 4th year Software Engineering student at Western University. I completed a 16-month internship at IBM as a Software Developer where I gained experience in front-end development and UI/UX design, working with various programming languages and frameworks such as JavaScript, React, VueJS, and Python, and design tools such as Figma and Balsamiq.

My curiosity about technology pushed me to pursue Software Engineering as learning to notice different patterns when coding has always amazed me. I am deeply interested to know how things work and innovate something more efficient, especially as technology is always advancing.
