Amelia Schmidt

My name's Amelia Schmidt and I'm a UX designer and front-end engineer.

I work at a company called Equiem. I am passionate about getting more women into software development roles and about breaking down stereotypes around software development in general. 

I studied arts and thought my career would be in writing and editing. Instead I ended up writing code and building experiences for users.

I love what I do, I teach at General Assembly, I'm currently mentoring an intern (an amazing woman from Iran) and I help organise a meetup for female leadership development.
