Born in China and raised in the US, Yan never thought of herself as a techie. But after a disappointing first job in finance after university, she discovered the freedom that coding provided. Now, she is the co-founder and CTO of Code Chrysalis, a coding bootcamp in Tokyo that has helped hundreds make career changes. Before Code Chrysalis, Yan worked as a software engineer at a Silicon Valley startup and started a coding bootcamp in Jordan helping refugees find jobs in technology.
