About Me

I am a dynamic, motivated first year web development student. Dedicated to my craft and education. Next semester, I will be learning Javascript and Intermediate HTML and CSS.

More About Me

Hello, my name is Rachel Cooper. I am a current first year Web development student at Long Beach City College. Whilst I still have a lot to learn, I hope you can see by my work that I am an extremely dedicated and fast learner.

In a past life, I was a nurse. Now I want a career change so that I can explore my creative side.

I absolutely love the process of coding and making a website come together. It is challenging yet fun and rewarding when it all comes together the way I want it to.

My other loves in life include my very sweet shih tzu, Jezebel. And discovering jewelry design.

Please stay tuned to updates I make as I further my education.
