Meet Lydia

My name Lydia and I am a UI/UX Intern at Content Economy. Throughout my journey at WORKOPTI, I have enjoyed getting visiblity into the product strategy through the CEO and being strategically impactful during my time as a Full-Time paid Employee through Content Economy Co.'s (the WORKOPTI Parent Company) partnership with America On Tech.

A few weeks ago, I onboarded with WORKOPTI and I'm so grateful and excited to have this opportunity, especially as a teenager navigating my way through new technology.  I wouldn't have gotten here if it wasn't for people who encouraged me in my freshman year of high school.

At that time, I was on my school's soccer varsity team and one of my teammates would always mention that she was attending a course that taught her how to code websites and apps. That piqued my interest because I was taking AP Computer Science at the time and I wanted to expand my knowledge of computers. So during my sophomore year, I filled out an application for a non-profit known as America on Tech.

Through America on Tech, I was able to learn how to make websites using HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap. I had so much fun working on the assigned websites that I started working on my own. I ended up making a very cool streaming website where you could watch a few movies and shows and I think it's still one of my favorite projects. After that program ended, I did many more with America on Tech which leads me to mention Tech Flex Leaders where I got the opportunity to apply for internships which is how I got here today!
