About Me

Picture of the author

I grew up in a very technically inclined family. It was when I turned 10 that my mom taught me how to build my very first computer. Instead of playing games and browsing the internet, I decided to start coding. Why? My mom had HTML and CSS books everywhere. I read through them and practiced coding, I self taught myself as much as I could. I kept at it until years later when I was graduating from High School. At that point in time I needed to start thinking about my future and what I wanted to pursue as a career. I couldn't make up my mind for what seemed like forever. A year following my high school graduation, I was on Facebook posting a status update about how my daughter was taking her first steps when I saw an advertisement for Full Sail Online. It was a Web Developer ad and everything clicked in my head at that very moment. I of course requested more information and enrolled as soon as I could. It has been a tough journey and I've already hit several roadblocks but I just keep pushing forward and working hard. I'm convinced that everything happens for a reason. I'm an overcomer, and an optimist. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me, the best has yet to come.
