I'm Shalini.

About me

I'm a fullstack web developer, currently based in Lille, where I'm studying for a Master's degree in Computer Science at the University of Lille.

I was born and raised in Mauritius. Prior to getting into tech, I got a LLB at the University of Mauritius. I began studying to become a notary public but realised that I'd be really miserable as a law practitioner. Soon after, I moved to France to study engineering, where I discovered the joys of writing code.

Outside of work, I spend my time reading anything and everything. I particularly love anything written by Neil Gaiman. I often go through phases of obsession with random stuff such as writing a story, playing the Elder Scrolls Skyrim for days on end, practicing yoga, or playing with cats.

I currently am looking for an internship in a tech position, scheduled to begin in March 2020.
