I finally completed my portfolio

So I have created my portfolio. I had a hard time coming up with a design template for how I wanted my portfolio to look. I know I wanted something simple and not too complicated since I'm still a newb. So instead, I used the theme from Freecodecamp video. Even though I didn't use the exact design, do you think employers will see this a negative since I didn't come up with my own design and code? Let me know what you guys think!

P.S. The resume is still work in progress.

Update as of 5/24:
-Fixed the about me section to make it more readable on mobile devices.

Looks great and works pretty nice.
I only looked up on mobile and I would recommend a few things if you don’t mind. I think it would be a good idea if you try to use mix-blend-mode: difference on your hamburger icon so it can be visible on any section, dark or white. The other one is the about text, ot seems to small and with short line-height, probably it is intentional but I found it a bit hard to read.

Yeah I just noticed that too. I'll work on the changes and thank you for pointing that out.

It looks nice , loads fast and the animation is simple and clean.
I think the small description text needs work , that font looks almost blurry especially on mobile.
That's the only negative i noticed

I really like how/that you share your improvements on your portfolio. You as well as others will learn a lot from it.

It's pretty good and it works responsively too so well done. Definitely has a unique style and design to it which you don't often see.

I am impressed and I'm inspired. I just survived my first week in SE class.

Thank you and congratulations on completing your first week. Learning how to code is not easy. So no matter how hard it gets, just never give up! I know I wanted to quit plenty of times. But quitters never prosper!

Trust me, I know how you feel. That's why I'm glad the DEV community exists. There's a lot of us who are struggling learning how to code. But as long as you keep pushing forward you'll make it.

All looks good, everything is fantastic. Just One issue though-
On mobile devices when you visit the section such as Home, About through Mobile Navigation. It should disappear after user clicks the link.

ISSUE-

It looks nice and clean, I also love the script font you chose.

Just one problem about the nav items animation, moving the mouse to the edge of the nav item will lead to the unexpected animation loop.

Hover Nav Item

I think this can be fixed by moving the hover selector from the text to the container.

I would like to see a button to switch to dark mode, but besides that I liked it :D
