Mayra M.F. Swann
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!
Feel free to contact me, or look for me on LinkedIn, Instagram or Goodreads, if you'd like to talk about Software Testing, Arts & Crafts, Fortune Telling, or just discuss the latest book I'm reading.
I look forward to hearing from you.
