Helena Wiehahn

Academic Enthusiast

About Me

Luneo Hope is a nom de guerre. My name is Helena Wiehahn, and I live in the Cape Winelands. You may wonder what on earth an academic enthusiast is. I cannot merely box myself as a front-end developer, or a designer, or an analyst. I like to spend my time acquiring new skills and helping others. I love to learn, read and apply new ideas. So, for the time being, I am a front-end developer, but I will forever be an academic enthusiast at heart and in search of more significant challenges.
