- Animal Rights
About this Project:
The app itself allows users to teach themselves about basic cat care while simultaneously carrying out their own studies on various cats of interest.Along with all of this important information (ways to help) users may also complete questionnaires to assess their knowledge, allowing them to maintain what they've learned.And also play a cute simple game involving cats.The reason why this app will help address the problem i mentioned earlier is because it can allow people to know what they are getting themselves into before adopting a cat.Reducing the chance that they won't be able to take care of it.
I created this design based on real-life events. I had a friend who had begged her mom for a kitten for months. Once they had adopted one, they had no idea how to care for it and decided to send it to a kill shelter. This disturbed me enough that I decided to create an app to address this ongoing problem hoping to gain support from others. While looking into animal shelters, I noticed a consistent reference of animal cruelty.This is horrifying to consider, given that the animals have no method of preventing or defending themselves from the awful situations in which they find themselves.I've also noticed that this type of cruelty is more widespread in cats than in dogs.As a cat lover, this upset me even more. I haven't seen much about this recurring problem, therefore I believe my design may be useful. It work by being a chain of pages that can be traversed with the use of buttons if i were to develop this app i would without a doubt add more information, sounds, and improve the mini game.

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.

"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."
