Tech

I recently rediscovered my love for tech, especially front-end web design and development. While I was unsure of what exactly I wanted to do within the field, I knew I wanted to give back to the community. My first role in the tech industry was at MotherCoders NYC, where I worked as a Student Success Coordinator. I am looking to continue to make an impact in tech, either by supporting underrepresented people in their learning journeys or by working as a creative designer/developer helping to enable the dreams of others while making the web more accessible and inclusive. As a front-end developer, I am especially interested in web accessibility, design systems, and technical writing.

MotherCoders NYC

Student Success Coordinator

Jessica Abejar with MotherCoders NYC Spring 2019 cohort.

In early 2019, I worked as the Student Success Coordinator for the inaugural cohort of MotherCoders NYC, a tech nonprofit that gives moms an opportunity to re-enter or level-up in the workplace by introducing them to the tech industry. In my role, I served as the on-the-ground coordinator and also had the opportunity to lead classes, playing a major role in our students' success.
