YOUR ACCOUNTMy Classroom
I am a medical student in the Philippines. I have to attend school from 8 to 5. Sometimes, I have crazy schedules. I am planning to become a neurologist, something to do with the brain.
For me, coding is like a language. If you understand coding, you can leverage it to get your messages across society.
There’s this book called Hacking Your Education. I learnt that you have to learn 2 things in life: learn how to code and learn how to write. You need to know technology, and you need to know communications.
I found coding very fun because it’s so logical. Learning how to code is like learning about how to think logically and clearly. It’s empowering to have the capacity to understand code, and coding can be tremendously useful in the future.
The future of medicine is also leaning towards tech. You have to write code in many medical studies. You also have to collaborate with engineers.
The best value from Altcademy is the mentorship. I always ask my mentor for help while I am working on challenging projects.
I like the curriculum structure at Altcademy. Structure goes first, and the specifics go after. It’s good to be able to see the big picture and the “why” before digging into the details.
With Altcademy, I’ve learnt the necessary train of thoughts when it comes to coding. You have to be logical and creative at the same time.
The “Aha” moments always happen when I am working on projects and talking to my mentor.
I am already self-motivated enough to learn. You can actually get a lot of content online for free, but it’s hard to consolidate these content.
I want a curriculum that’s already well consolidated. I also want a program with flexible schedule and mentorship because I have a packed schedule with medical school, and I want to save time.
Altcademy’s online NanoMajors turn out to be quite affordable and flexible!

"I like to learn something new every day and travel around the world."
