Get to Know Yen
What is one of your proudest accomplishments?
I used to work at an archives, and the historical materials were confined to the physical location (in a basement, accessible only by going down a set of stairs). I taught myself coding languages to categorize and digitize a few collections, which opened up access to anyone with an internet connection. This project started my career path transition from history to technology.
What does your mother think you do?
She thinks I am the government.
If you had 25 hours in a day how would you use your extra time?
Before the pandemic, I would have said that I'd like to spend more time with my family. Now during the pandemic, I would say that I'd like to spend less time with my family.
