This course will be taught by Lauren Fazah.

Lauren graduated from Northeastern University with a BA in International Affairs and Middle Eastern Studies. Passionate about culture, language and travel, she also realized she had a great passion for web development. Eager to switch into a career involving building, creating and fixing, Lauren enrolled into General Assembly's Web Development Immersive. She now is working as a full-stack developer at Hill Holliday and spends much of her free time helping others take the same leap into the world of development.
