Chavez

Oakland, CA, Class of 2021


High school

Maybeck High School

Roman is a huge fan of the arts. He is inspired by meaningful films, choreography, paintings, music, and most of all generative artworks. He takes his knowledge of code and uses it to creative visual universes. Sometimes, he will spend hours in his universe without knowing that time went by so fast. The program he uses is Processing, and sometimes, for small animation, he will use Procreate. Other than that, he is always down to get a crepe or boba! He loves Berkeley, but he plans to go to Stanford for college. Above all, he is willing to help others when they need it.

Oakland Technical High School

I was born and raised in Oakland and was introduced to Code Next through the Computer Science Academy at Oakland Technical high school. I spend my time juggling rigorous academics while engaging in Code Next’s unique computer science curriculum. I am interested in leadership development, along with studying business, communication and technology. As a sophomore, I joined the Linux Operating Systems club for two terms, the mobile IOS app development club and several workshops. In summer 2020, I joined TeamEdge, and worked with a team of four (2 Oakland + 2 Harlem) students to win the Code Next 2020 Hackathon! I am the co-captain of my school’s Mock Trial team and give back to my community by volunteering as a tutor for a younger student, whom I hope will join a future Code Next generation. When I’m not coding, you’ll find me rooting for Liverpool FC or casually playing soccer. I’m super grateful for the opportunities that Code Next has given me to think, make and lead.

Hi, I'm Brianna, but I go by Bri. I am 16 years old and a junior at Oakland High School. I'm a fun and open-minded individual who enjoys learning new things and interacting with new people. I also am an activist for social justice and an ally for the LGBTQ+ community. I joined Code Next towards the end of 8th grade and I've been with them ever since. When I joined Code Next, I was skeptical, and I wasn't sure how it would benefit me in the long run. But my journey with Code Next has not only expanded my knowledge in tech, but has also helped me find out what I want to study in college. Hopefully after I graduate from OHS, I will be able to attend SFSU. There, I would like to study marketing and branding. I am so thankful for all that Code Next has done for me and all that it continues to do—not just for me, but also for my community.
