Hi, I’m Lucca! ✌️ I’m a 20 y/o programmer, musician and student from Brasília, Brazil, and I study at Carnegie Mellon University.
I enjoy learning about full-stack web development and building web apps with my favorite technologies, both as a freelance developer and as a hobbyist. I also like fiddling around with electronics, learning about microcontrollers and microprocessor architectures.
When I’m not coding or studying, I’m often listening to jazz or playing some funky basslines.
I’ve been working as a freelance Discord bot developer since December 2021. Through my freelance work, I help both small businesses and invididuals alike take their Discord communities to the next level by developing highly customized and easy-to-use Discord bots.
I have built and shipped a wide variety of custom bots, including server management tools for mods and admins, full-fledged Ethereum blockchain integrations and, of course, some fun games too.
More recently, however, I have been looking to gradually shift my focus over to frontend/full-stack web development projects, as that’s what I enjoy doing most.
Carnegie Mellon University
I’m an undergraduate engineering student at Carnegie Mellon University. I’m still an incoming freshman student at the College of Engineering, so I don’t have much to report here just yet, but I’m really excited to move to Pittsburgh and start my college journey! I plan on majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).
Colégio Militar de Brasília
CMB (Military School of Brasília) is federal public school in Brasília, Federal District. I studied there from 6th grade all the way to 12th grade, graduating High School in December 2020 in the top 5% of my class of 530+ students. I was admitted to CMB in 6th grade (2014), when I ranked 3rd on CMB’s extremely competitive admission test, where over 1100 candidates competed for just 30 spots reserved for civilian students.
Despite the school’s strict rules and strong Brazilian military traditions, CMB holds a very special place my heart for allowing me to make life-long friendships and for motivating me to work hard both in and out of the classroom.
Below are some of my olympiads awards throughout middle and high school.
- OBMEP: 4 gold, 2 silver
- OBM: 2 silver
- Kangaroo Brazil: 4 gold
- OBF: 3 gold, 1 silver
- OBFEP: 2 gold, 2 silver
- OBA: 5 gold, 1 silver
