I don't think you did anything wrong, so I don't think you should be sorry.
Sorry if I offended you personally. That was not the idea.
See, when you emphasize that you've been through some struggles, that may give your thread a certain tonality. For example, that your AMA might be interesting for people finishing college at 15 or high school at 12, because you have some experience to share and help them.
Ok, as this is still an AMA: could you share some of career experiences that you mention? The ones that would offer unique perspectives.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
