I’m Isabel, from Angola and web developer at Inkfish.
I am married, no kids, currently living in the quiet city of Pretoria with my husband.
I am working from home in a very quiet environment, where I enjoy a hot cup of tea every morning.
One of the nice things I like about my internship at Inkfish is that I don’t have to go to the office and I can work from every part of the word.
