About this Project:
My name is Jasmin and my partner's name is Sahteve. We want to introduce our new upcoming app called Boombloom. Boombloom is an online Instacart app that makes it easier and more efficient to deliver/pick up fresh produce from our hydroponic lab in our classroom. Our app was inspired by the fact that we noticed a sharp rise in unhealthy eating practices in our neighborhood. Learning that we can grow these fresh fruits and vegetables in our hydroponic lab and not be able to distribute them to our community to encourage them to adopt healthier lifestyles bothers us. So we came up with the idea that this app could be the tool through which we distribute the produce we make in our class. When coming up with this app, we thought about how we will conduct a productive and orderly fashion way of distribution. Our app offers multiple subscription plans, each of which has special advantages. Our app also includes daily announcements of what we have to offer throughout the week. The list of plants we grow in our Hydroponic Lab are: Basil -Sorrel Cabbage-Amarant - thyme - pepper -kale -tomatoes, and many more. Our app additionally includes personal contact with the seller and updates on the plants that we grow for those special subscribers. The fun doesn't end there; over your birthday week, our volunteers will assist by conducting surveys to determine what plants and other items you enjoy having in your home. Once we have all of your information, we will use it to create a customized basket that includes a brochure on how to prepare healthy meal plans and how to cater to your new pet plants. You can easily see when we will be harvesting our plants and germination new ones using the app's calendar, which is easily accessible. Ordering is made simpler by this feature, and you can be sure to get the plants you want. In the end, we hope our app has changed your perspective on eating healthy and not having an excuse to consume unhealthy food such as any fast food restaurant.

Types of work that I do
Business & Marketing
What I do all day at work?
In the IT area, my education is grounded in Full Stack Web Development and I am currently solidifying knowledge in Computer Engineering. Over the last 8 years, I completed several specific trainings in IT Support (Google), Computer Programming, Systems Administration and Networking, Python and I am finishing a certified training in UX/UI. Over this period, I developed projects in a pedagogical context as a Full Stack Programmer. Since 2022, I graduated in SAP (PLM, PS and EPPM modules) and I have been working as an SAP Functional Consultant since January of this year. At the same time that I work in the IT area, I have been a PT-EN, FR and SP translator since 2014. I never fail to point out that technical knowledge can become empty if we do not attribute relevance to social and human knowledge and sensitivity. Therefore, my career would not have been possible if I had not completed a degree in History (2007), a postgraduate degree in Museum Studies (2008) and a degree in Educational Sciences (2014). All knowledge gives us the opportunity to choose what we want to be.
One of my main motivations is continuous learning along with multidisciplinary and such is reflected in my academic and professional path.
Therefore, it is in Computer Programming / Engineering that I feel I can be useful, creative and able to combine my personal interests and knowledge acquired.
Alongside the field of IT, I'm also a freelance Translator.

The best piece of career advice I've ever received
"In meetings, remember that your facial expressions speak louder than words, so try not to look as confused as a penguin trying to fly when your boss drops an unexpected bombshell."
