Hi, my name is Bewaji Oyesanya. I am a multidisciplinary designer specializing in Architecture and UI/UX Design. I recently completed my Part 1 Architecture degree and currently work at Ford. I have won awards in architecture from Gensler and The RIBA and in UI/UX Design from Codenode and Athena Alongside my studies, I initiated a food blog and co-founded a successful bubble tea brand, where I excelled as a social media manager and content creator.
At the upcoming festival, Faith and Bewaji will be teaching a Scratch course. Scratch is the world's largest coding community for children and a coding language with a simple visual interface that allows young people to create digital stories, games, and animations. By the end of the session, you will be able to build your very own mini-video game! How exciting is that?
