In Their Own Words
People from all walks of life have transformed their careers by attending a Grand Circus bootcamp. Our graduates were once yoga instructors, nurses, academics, teachers, and more. Now they're successful software team leaders, entrepreneurs, software developers, QA analysts, and more at companies large and small.
Prior to my GC bootcamp, I was working as a Senior Digital Marketer focusing on paid social campaigns for automotive OEMs. But a few years ago, a job as a website assistant inspired my aggressive career change into tech. I considered a degree in Computer Science Degree, but didn’t have the money or time for another four-year degree. In my quest, I found a local fast track option at Grand Circus. I was lucky to find employment right after graduation of my bootcamp and had GC as a big name to help me validate my programming certification despite having a non-CS degree.

I always wanted to become a developer, a Black-Girls-Coder, a Women-in-Tech-programmer, because I love science and technology. I decided that it is time to be more than a user, more than a content creator. It’s time to build.
