Amsterdam’s romantic canals and vibrant cafes set the stage for a love story unlike any other – a love for each other and a newfound passion for the world of tech. Felipe, a lawyer seeking global horizons, and Victoria, a finance professional craving new frontiers, discovered their tech spark at Le Wagon.

Love as Their Guiding Star

Theirs wasn’t just a story of professional transformation, but a testament to the power of love in fueling ambition. Felipe, initially apprehensive about leaving his legal career, found unwavering support in Victoria. “Having Victoria by my side and supporting my decisions made me feel confident and prevented any second thoughts on my part,” he shares.

She, in turn, drew strength from his positive outlook and unwavering belief in their shared dream. “The fact that we were able to live this moment together definitely helped me face my insecurities and feel safer. Felipe is a very positive and confident person, it’s great to have someone like that by your side pushing you forward,” Victoria adds.

From Law & Finance to Code & Data

Their paths within tech diverged, yet their support remained constant. Felipe delved into the world of web development, fascinated by the logic and creative power of coding. “It somehow becomes natural after a round of painful lectures,” he laughs, reflecting on the initial challenges.

Victoria, drawn to the analytical side, immersed herself in data analysis, eager to harness data analysis potential for positive change. “Being all in the same boat, we helped each other a lot and that was really important for me to get the most out of the bootcamp,” she remembers, highlighting the supportive community at Le Wagon.
