Here is my story of how I fell in love with web development. It started in my first semester in school enrolled in my first ever web development class; I was new at that time and did not know squat. This class captivated me because it showed me the possibilities that I could create literally with a touch of my fingertips. It opened my eyes to the world of software and the endless possibilities that I could create.
Fast-forward to my second year, I joined the Information Technology Club where it was an exciting time for me and an experience I wouldn’t forget. In the club, we were mainly responsible for hosting LAN parties, the parties where gamers gather together to play side-by-side; yeah, kind of old school and un-speak of nowadays. I was thrilled and wanted to help the gaming community come together as well as enjoy an experience they would never forget. When I heard that the club needed help promoting these LAN parties, I jumped on board thrilled that I could use the design and development skills I’ve been honing.
At the time, I had no idea that creating those websites all those years ago would become the foundation and the heart of why I continue to do so now. I am thankful for the experience and the people that I worked alongside building them. It was memorable and a true turning point of why I continue to pursue and learn as much as I can. Even though I know I have a lot to learn I’m grateful for how I started and I won’t forget why I build them today. “To happily build a healthier future.”
