Hello there, My name is Olivia Roche and welcome to my personal portfolio! I am currently working on becoming a self taught developer and using these skills to get a job within the IT industry. This page will be used to display updates on my skills and any projects that I have made over the next few months.
I've always been intersted in both science and technology, learning how things work and applying that knowledge to create new ideas. I graduated from Waterford Institute of Technology in October 2015 with a BSc in Pharmaceutical Science. This course lasted 3 years with one semester dedicated to a final year project. For anyone interested, this project can be seen on my LinkedIn page. This course also covered modules in many different areas of Chemistry, Physics and Maths which I believe offers me a unique perspective on design and development concepts. More information on my qualification can be found here.
Ouside of science and technology, my hobbies include training martial arts, and playing videogames. Martial arts is a huge part of my life and I have been training in many different diciplines since a very young age. A lot of my idols include martial artists such as Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali and Conor McGregor. A lot of my down time is spent playing video games and like many others, where my interest for technology comes from.
