When the pandemic shut down New York City in the spring of 2020, it meant performance spaces closing their doors and many performers out of a job.

Micheline Wu, a professional dancer with a background in musical theater and choreography, needed to transition careers for stability during the pandemic.

She enrolled in a 13-week engineering and coding program in August 2020 and now works as a solutions engineer, focusing on front-end development.

Wu spoke with PIX11 News to discuss her career shift and how it’s been going.
