Its not easy knowing what you want to be when you grow up, I just knew that I didn't want to wakeup to go to a tedious job where I was under paid and over worked. My previous job in retail seemed to do more of the latter so when I was let go, I made the decision to never let that happen again, my next job will be used as a ladder to finding out what career I really want to be in. When the pandemic finally hit the U.S., it knocked me off the ladder but after being in a new job for almost a year, I told myself to start looking into taking classes. After a month of searching through schools and trying to figure out which classes I wanted to take, I saw a flyer at work advertising classes for Software Engineering. Suddenly I knew what I was going to do. I was the only child to a single parent so I was always the one setting up our technology and making sure our internet connection was working properly. When my 10 year old cousin told me he was going to be taught how to code in school, I remember thinking of how awesome it would be to learn it too. The opportunity has now presented itself to me and I'd be a fool not to take it. I'm hoping to have a eventful career programming with a magazine or some blogs like TMZ.
