<aside> 👋 Hi, my name is Isabella. I'm a software engineer.

I became a developer to help rescue puppies (no, really!) in 2015. Though, I built my first ever website in 2000 with just html and inline styles. It was an homage to Britney Spears and her lyrics (hey, I was only 10!). I vividly recall using fuchsia and aqua. I'm pretty sure my father purposefully didn't teach me how to host it - I'm relieved if somewhat disappointed.

My most used language is JavaScript, but I'm confident with switching languages.
