From rural Madagascar to the front end of development

Coming from a small rural village in the rolling hills of Vavatenina, Madagascar, I never dreamed of becoming a developer or even of speaking English as a child.

But that all changed when I was offered a place at Onja, a social enterprise that trains high-achieving underprivileged young people to become software developers. And now, three years later, here I am a front end web developer!

At Lighthouse you will find me challenging myself to solve complex problems that I thought were beyond me. Coming across a new technology is the most exciting part of my day.

Outside work, I like going for walks with my friends, watching sports, music, reading and giving as much time as possible to my son.
