Hi, I am Yerang. I am originally from South Korea but lived the past 4 years in India before moving to New York. Coding only exists for tumblr to me and I know very little about it. To be honesty, I was not excited for spending hours and hours in front of computer like a nerd, but I am now have excitement for creating fantastic things in this class.
