Picture of Malaika, the creative web developer at Big Sea

I’ve always had an affinity for math and science, so was drawn to computers and technology early in life (I took my first web design class when I was 14!).

My success in that class made it was clear I was supposed to be a web designer or developer. Looking for a challenge, I was a computer science major before I switched over to web design.

During my time at the University of Central Florida, I took on many web-based projects and coding challenges. I also enjoyed finding leadership opportunities on campus and being as involved as I could in various organizations. I graduated from UCF with a Bachelors in Digital Media, concentrating on Web Design, with a Computer Science Minor. 

In my free time, I perform in my church choir and love to craft. I just bought a house and am enjoying fixing it up and decorating.
