Sonia Botsarova

Apprentice, Developer

Sonia joined Agile Collective as an apprentice web developer in August 2022 after completing her training in full-stack web development at the Founders and Coders coding bootcamp. 

Life before Agile Collective

Sonia’s coding journey started in April 2021 when she decided to learn HTML and CSS as a hobby and since then she never looked back. Now, she loves building projects from scratch, learning about and trying different technologies, and racking her brain to solve challenging technical problems. 

Before discovering her passion for web development, Sonia worked as a journalist in Greece, an English teacher in Vietnam, and a copywriter in the UK. 

At Agile, Sonia is hoping to become a well-rounded developer, contribute to ethical, purpose-driven projects, and be part of the change she wants to see in the tech industry.

When not at work

One of Sonia’s biggest passions is cinema. She enjoys discovering and watching meaningful, thought-provoking films from all around the world. She used to write about them in her blog (which hasn’t been updated for more than a year because life keeps getting in the way). Maybe one day she’ll finish the script for her first feature film. 

Except for movies, she finds happiness in sunny days, healthy productivity habits, veganism, and seeing people being compassionate, supportive, and kind to each other and the world around them.
