Your site looks great and the projects look impressive. As someone who hires talent I can tell you the two concerns I will have.

Inclusive language is very important, so in your flight itinerary generator, I see “salesman” and a more inclusive term is “salesperson” or “salespeople”

It feels like your top ten web scraper is an app that helps people find and download popular music. Is that right? If so, as someone that hires people, it feels like stealing music and I would pass on hiring you. If that’s not it at all, be more clear as to the functionality. Also, your projects are super impressive, so web scraping music feels less impressive, so maybe it does not even belong on your professional profile?

Thanks for the feedback! The web scraper doesnt download the songs it just displays them. The downloaded data is just the name of the song and the link to the music video. I'll make sure to make it more clear

Cool. I did notice some grammatical errors. You might want to run your content through Grammarly or paste it into a word processing app. Good job!

Looks awesome. If you are interested in cloud at all I would suggest taking the cloud resume challenge. It's a great way to get experience with DevOps outside of school.

Looks great. The only thing I would change is 'typewriter' effect in the hero image. It really ennoys me when i have to wait for text to be displayed. Rather than this it looks clean and good.

Looks very nice.
May I ask what theme and framework you are using to build this profile page?

I just used plain HTML, SCSS, and JavaScript :). Particle.js for the hero background and wow.js for the animations

Just need to buy the domain. Check get.dev/ and it will show you if the one your looking for is available and where to get it
