Olivia Neil-Jones is a Founding Scholar at Academy. She joined the programme after studying Classics at Cambridge University.
Olivia is a great advocate for making technology accessible. She is a Fellow at Code First: Girls, volunteering her time as an instructor, and she was part of the Founding Team here at Academy before joining our pilot cohort.
“Academy is a lot of things — it’s about enabling opportunities, broadening the graduate career landscape, but most importantly, it’s about doing something meaningful.
It’s about taking young people from all walks of life, with all kinds of interests and skillsets, and creating a place where we can all grow into our skin, kickstart an incredible career, and give software engineering a new, all-rounded face.”
Olivia is half Italian and very passionate about literature and history of art. She is also our Cohort Ambassador.
