I wanted to take the challenge of developing this app myself since this is my first hackathon as a Front-End Developer. Flying solo, has allowed me to learn faster and improve my organizational skills. Having no experience in Android Development, this time, I was able to learn Android Studio.
In addition, I had been taking Korean language courses, but nothing really stuck until I immersed myself in Korean media (ie K-Dramas). I have been hooked on a drama titled "Home for Summer," which uses uncommon vocabulary and phrases.
