Gema enters Microsoft LEAP program, following the lead of previous Sabio fellows

The Microsoft LEAP Engineering Acceleration Program (LEAP) is an immersive 16 week paid program that provides participants with real world development experience.  The goal of the program is to not only provide development experience but to foster inclusivity and support diversity at Microsoft.  The program is highly competitive, with approximately 340 applicants, and only were 28 hired.  Sabio is super proud to have three Alumni participate in the Fall 2017 LEAP program.

Gema B. finished her Sabio bootcamp experience in July - 2015, and has been working as a Software Engineer for almost a year and a half at LA Fitness in Orange County. Last week she packed up and headed north to Washington state to participate in the LEAP program, which is in Redmond.

"I decided that I wanted to learn more and improve my skills. I applied to this program because my husband is in tech as well, and we have wanted to move somewhere else, and this opportunity seemed too good to pass up," Gema said.

Gema credits the Sabio fellows who have gone through this program with informing her of this opportunity and motivating her to apply for LEAP.

"I'm looking forward to being out of the busyness of L.A. I love how beautiful and green the Seattle area is is. As far as the program goes, I'm excited to start because of how much I have heard from the other fellows about how much they have learned and improved their skills. I'm also looking forward to the possibility of being hired by Microsoft when the program ends, so that would be something that I would like to see happen," Gema said.

Congrats Gema and good luck in Redmond.  The other two Sabio Fellows that are in Redmond are David L. and Lyrana H. The Sabio Community is super excited for these super smart Fellows.
