Who is Melaati Jayah?

Since I was little, my dad raised me to be an inventor, a creator of anything with tools we found on the street or at home. A very important story that I will never forget is when my father and i walked on the Green Line in Memphis and found Kayman trees. Kayman trees are similar to bamboo trees with its outer appearance and texture. We cut the tree, broke it into sticks and made lanterns for our friends celebrating Sri-Lanka's special lantern holiday. With Code Crew Code School I am still connected to my roots, I still use the skills my dad has taught me and expand my mind in the world of technology. Im excited for my journey and the skills I will gain one step at a time.
