CoCo SciComm Team interviewed Sergio's, one of our Coding Trainers, to get insight into her motivation and purpose for teaching at CoCo. 

Q: What are some of the things you expect to learn from CoCo? 

A: I love teaching, I'll like to pile up more experience teaching coding related material.

Q: What made you decide to be involved in a bilingual program such as CoCo?

A: I love the concept of the program, I've seen people struggle a lot with code when entering a graduate program, and I like the idea of helping (and getting paid in the process).

Q: What kind of activities do you enjoy doing outside work? 

A: I like learning about design in general, I also play video games (and learn to design them as well). I'm a decent cook, and I enjoy trying new food as well.

We admire Sergio's passion for teaching coding skills to students in need. You can follow Sergio's updates on his Twitter page
