About Alvin

I am a Computer Science major and Data Analysis minor at Wesleyan University in the class of 2019. I love exploring the intersection between technology, entrepreneurship, education and philanthropy.

I run a nonprofit youth coding school in Zimbabwe called Zim Code, which I founded in January 2016. As its Chief Executive, I have raised over $25k for its operations since its founding and continue to lead it and its team of 40 tutors in delivering coding lessons to under-represented Zimbabwean youths. On campus, I have worked closely with Wesleyan’s Entrepreneurship Center as an Advisory Board member and a participant of its student programs. I am also a student manager of two different divisions of the campus Information Technology Services.

I have gotten the unique opportunity to explore my love for data, working as a Data Analyst at Facebook. I love coding, teaching it to others and using it as a tool for impactful social entrepreneurship, economic growth and empowerment.

I write, not only as a way of self-expression but also as a way to challenge myself. Writing evokes thought processes within me and makes me question a lot of concepts in my day to day life. Seeing that this blog is about everyday things that happen around me, I hope to one day make it a book.

Thank you for your support!
