I was always interested in computers starting from an early age. So when I took my first programming course in college, I was amazed by what seemed like an endless number of possibilities from coding. I was instantly hooked. Since then, I’ve learned more languages and techniques, and haven’t stopped.
I’m actually from the Bay Area in California. I went to MSU as an out-of-state student for Computer Science. The experience living there was wildly different from home. What was once noisy streets and cold pavement is now quiet neighborhoods and green lawns.
In classes, most of the instructors were open-minded and approachable. Because of this, I learned that I shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions.
There is always something to learn! It is hard to get bored when there are near-infinite amount of languages, programming techniques, and theory to dive into.
Right now, I am seeking opportunities to further personal and professional growth. In two years, I can see myself having the skills to achieve these goals. In four, I will be confident enough to be mentoring those who are still looking to obtain the skills for their goals. I am very passionate when it comes to my work and I can’t see myself losing that passion down the road.
Keep learning! The world of programming is always evolving with changing code standards and new tools being made. In order to become a developer, you can’t be afraid of constantly gaining new knowledge.
