Hi! I'm Mayra, nice to meet you.
I'm a Brazilian geek that gladly traded off the hot Brazilian sun for the clouds in the UK.
I was a Portuguese and Literature student that spent her leisure time reading books and watching anime and dreamed of becoming a translator until I went to work on a cruise ship and my whole perspective changed.
I came to the UK, got a Business Management bachelor's degree, but IT was always my passion.
I left university dreaming about becoming a Technical Consultant, but fate had a better idea. In 2015, I started a graduate scheme on Software Testing, and absolutely fell in love with it.
During my career, I learned to code and got a bit more technical knowledge to support my role. I now specialize in automation and agile testing, testing side by side with devs to make sure the development process runs smoothly.
But testing is not my sole passion in life. I have developed a taste for arts and crafts and fortune-telling, spending my free time doing calligraphy, bookbinding and reading Tarot.
I am also a certified SoulCollage® facilitator, allowing me to share this beautiful work with the world.
As a good geek, I also enjoy reading books, playing boardgames and watching the latest Netflix series, I can't wait for the next series of The Witcher!
I look forward to hearing from you.
