How did this start?

Two years ago, I wanted to study graphic designing but my mother directed me to do software engineering while doing my A/Ls in the physical science stream. Yet my life has changed due to my parents' decision.

But now I have finally agreed with this decision because the best stream I like was information technology. I should very thankful for them. ❤

My first contribution to open source

However, I started studying basic software engineering but was unable to contribute to open source.

In 2019 I was able to learn about HacktoberFest. I tried to do it but was disappointed that I couldn't finish it successfully and decided to do it next year somehow.

I was also worried that I would not be able to do it in 2020 because the A / L was delayed. But I was able to finish it successfully somehow 🥳. I can't wait for my gift for my first HacktoberFest contribution. Hope it'll come soon.
