About Me

My full name is Mbabazi Thierry Laurent Kirke-Smith and I am a 15 year old student currently in Riviera High School. I have had a passion for IT since I first touched a computer and thanks to Brit Hemming from Programmers 4 Peace and kLab I have been able to turn my dreams into a reality. I am honest, hardworking and I enjoy challenges. I work well independently and even better in a group. My skills include web development and design. I can create wireframes and speak HTML and CSS. I can also work with a statistics site generator called Jekyll, JavaScript, and a JavaScript librar known as JQuery.

What I Do

I can create and design a website from scratch for individuals or small businesses.

My Goals

My goal is to become a trusted and highly recommendable programmer delivering first class material to clients. I understand the value of time and the importance of quality work. I believe a good reputation is key for a successful career and will work hard to satisfy the needs of my clients.

My Skills

Leadership

I believe being the first born child in my family has made me into a natural born leader. In year 6 I was elected student council class representative, have been captain of multiple P.E lessons as well as the under 15 boys basketball team. I have also led my class in preparation for the 2017 major Cambridge Checkpoint Exams.

Fast Learner

I learn new skills quickly and am frequently at the top of my class. As a result I enjoy helping others and sharing my knowledge.

Group Work

While I can work well independently, I enjoy working in a group more. I like sharing and gaining knowledge from others and contributing to the group's well-being.

Designer/Artist

I appreciate the beauty and creativity in design and like to draw inspiration from art and my life. I have always had a passion for art and above all enjoy design in web development. It brings me joy to see balance and ideas that fit creatively together.
