Desy (she/her) rhymes with Messi (the football player).

I am a 25 year old woman from Indonesia who has lived in the UK for 8 years. I am a Frontend Engineer who actively contributes to women's networks by organising various events and initiatives. Public speaking and music are my biggest passions.

My day job as a Tech Consultant at Deloitte revolves around digital transformations particularly enterprise integration and web app development. I have spoken at various tech conferences across Europe and my technical skills were recognised through WATC Rising Star Awards 2018 in Technology.

As a woman of colour, I am a proud diversity champion and dedicate my time as a Women Techmakers Belfast Organiser and a #IamRemarkable trainer.

I run an impromptu public speaking group called The SPUDS Belfast. We are a friendly and supportive group dedicated to provide a safe learning space for people who are terrified of speaking in public.

Inspired by my childhood dream of singing in a band, I also sing and play the ukulele on my spare time. It was challenging to learn as an adult but I absolutely love it.

I am a firm believer that anyone has the power to engineer their own success - irrespective of who they are and their background. If I can do it, so can you.
