About Me

I am one of seven children. I love increasing my knowledge in different areas but education is what my mother valued over any other extra activities. I have too large of a family to not be drawn to helping others with their journey, while still learning what route I should follow along in my own journey. This is what brought me to the idea of designing projects; which inspired individuals would utilize in the near future. The thought of being one who positively affect someone's life is what drives me to make something of myself.

I'm driven to grow my career as a web developer and build software that matters to its users. I'm currently learning how to be a full-stack web developer at Base Camp Coding Academy. At Base Camp, we are taught to use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, Django, Java, and a multitude of other beneficial factors to assist with learning what it takes to ship features to users.
